I was rummaging (metaphorically) through my archives, and discovered some papers I wrote back in seminary. It is both humbling and fascinating to see what was of interest to me at that time.
There are a few papers of which I was quite proud back then and about which I am not too embarrassed today. I may share them in the weeks to come. I am grateful for the instruction I received at Cairn University, which–in contrast to the larger seminary I attended for my first year–had smaller classes and more opportunities to do independent studies and research with professors. I will always be grateful for the study on Hebrew Poetry with Brian Toews over the summer of 2009, for the opportunity to write a paper on acrostics, and for Chuck Walton, who first said, “Have you ever thought of presenting at a conference or publishing that paper?”
