Master's Degree and Possible Trip
« on: April 17, 2008, 06:33:49 PM »
Hey, folks...

Please pray for me, as I'm going to be making a decision, probably very soon (as in, before Pascha) whether or not to start a Master's in Counseling from UMass (it's online and would help with our probable move here in a year or so).  This would entail, for starters, a two-week trip up to N. Dartmouth to get a couple of clinical courses out of the way.

Please pray for wisdom...and, if anyone happens to live within shouting distance of UMass Dartmouth, let me know; I'd love to meet with folks from the forum.

Peace.

Lord, have mercy.

Best of luck to you with your decision.   :)

Prayers my friend...
An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

God bless!
Asemănându-te obiceiurilor râvnitorului Ilie şi urmând Botezătorului pe drepte cărări, Părinte Antonie, te-ai făcut locuitor pustiului şi ai întărit lumea cu rugăciunile tale. Pentru aceasta, roagă-te lui Hristos Dumnezeu, să mântuiască sufletele noastre.

Lord have mercy and grant us Hagia Sophia.
Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

May God help you in this decision and in everything else.

By the way, now I live in Massachusetts. So it would be really excellent to see you!
