Last day

Friday, 22 October, 2004

Yesterday I had my last day of MTS. I know I'm still technically working for ECU in going to National Training Event, doing mission and whatever else comes my way but yesterday was still my last MTS-“day” if you know what I mean. I'll never be doing this again.

It was characterised by:

Does finishing up MTS mean you will sleep better and (hopefully) feel better, given that there will be less pressure on you?

Don’t know about you, but I cry when I am very tired and not sleeping well.  Are you going to have some time off munchkin?

Love you sweetie.  Sorry I couldn’t come to the Supporters Dinner - same night as Gilmore Girls.

I haven’t done Just for Starters for a while - why do you think its not well written?

Heeeey! I have an even better idea! After you’ve done your Dip. B&M at Moore and when Guan’s left MM, you can take over Guan’s job AND re-write the Just for Starters studies and get them published!!!! And you can sign my copy!!

How come you don’t want to do MTS again?  Is it too difficult?

Ben A: I hope so but we’ll see.

George: I’m going to schedule in some days off but I can’t take any more leave because the rest of it is being used for NTE.

Elsie: I find the Just for Starters studies frustrating—the questions look deceptively simple but if you want to get the most out of the studies, then you go beyond the questions and ask your own and sometimes you even deconstruct the question to get the person you’re doing the studies with to understand stuff. There are also other Bible passages that you can go to to supplement the questions but these are found in the leaders’ notes and it confuses me about what they’re there for (Amanda says you have a choice about what to do with them).

I think the main problem with the studies is that they are essentially systematic theology but they are trying to do systematic theology with one passage (which you can’t) and the studies try to make up for it by adding the extra passages in the leaders’ notes and not in the actual studies.

Not that you should put all the other passages in the actual studies. I just think there are better ways of doing it which don’t confuse the person who is leading the studies.

Or maybe I’m just the only one who gets confused by them ... I’m such an English student.

Haydn: Read my blog and the newsletters I send you and you will understand why.
