Cool Grass and a Holy Reminder

5/19/15 in Andrew Hebert

A couple of weeks ago in Worship and Prayer we did an extended prayer exercise. We were given 45 minutes to go on a meditative walk. We were to spend the entire time listening, and then take about ten minutes at the end to process what God might have had to say to us...

Sharing Our Stories, Gaining Wisdom

5/14/15 in Jana Kidd

The Vocation and Formation Groups have been very helpful to me. As a new student in classes with others who are much further along in their seminary careers, I find it increases my confidence to be able to get to know a few other students on a more personal basis...

Easter Us

Just Keep Swimming

We’ve reached the halfway point in our journey together. Time for a breather. Well, a short one anyway. Midterms have come and gone and regardless the outcome there are still five more weeks until this quarter ends.

You’re Going to Seminary – Really?

4/29/15 in Jana Kidd

Entering seminary at a time when most people who are currently alive are younger than me raised some eyebrows among my friends. I took my first class at Fuller Seminary at the age of 60, a time of life when most people I know want to slow down, take it easy, maybe travel a bit. Those things all sound great to me, too, but I have a few experiences under my belt already...

Prepare! What I’ve learned from my first quarter is that there is no time like the present. 10 weeks goes by faster than you’d imagine; especially when most of that time is spent reading. Currently, I’ve begun preparing for midterms in 2 weeks and final papers...

Lo que he descubierto en Fuller

4/23/15 in Carlos Cevallos

Llegué a California hace casi 8 meses. ¿La razón? Comenzar mis estudios teológicos en Fuller. Después de servir varios años como pastor en una bella congregación en México, Dios dirigió los pasos de mi familia para emprender este nuevo reto de fe...

Engaging the Psalms

4/23/15 in Andrew Hebert

In Practice of Worship and Prayer, we have spent a lot of time considering the Psalms as the primary resource for Christian worship and prayer. Two weeks ago, our professor David Taylor was discussing the significance of the Psalms and the variety of their content and use.

Selfhood, Community, Our Call

4/17/15 in Kimberly Gray

As we approach the end of the quarter, my mind ventures into many different directions. I prepare to leave with more questions than answers. I started the course anticipating that it would answer or at least begin to address all my deep questions about what I'm called to do and who I am called to be.
