Good day to all, might not be to proper board to post but I am doubt, feel free to move it where it belong.
So, I am at the crossroad: I am in my late 20's and the work that I do doesn't fit my faith anymore. Also, my health doesn't allow me to work as much as physical as I used to. In order to re-orient my career, I went back to finish my high-school diploma which was a surprising success. Now, it is time to choose a field of study that will enable me to get a degree in order to leave my job to a better environment (more clerical in nature to accommodate my health) and also to serve and glorify God. So far, I am really interested in studying theology as it fit my faith and intellectual needs as Christ is my Bread of Life and He fills me. Other fields are less interesting but are still considered as option since that I have to find a job to support my wife and children, but theology is definitely what I would like to study. I wont be able to transform this degree into being a candidate to the priesthood since that I am wed to my heterodox wife (without the Church's blessing too, unfortunately) and that I am tattooed all over ( I am a convert, so I did a lot of stupid stuff before).
I was wondering if some peoples had stories about their theological studies and if they found a job (other than the priesthood) with their degree in Theology.
Thank you for sharing and giving me some advices for those who went through a similar path!
