In 2013, I became a grad student at Northern Seminary. I wrote about the experience in this space here. My life-altering health diagnosis and costly montly treatments derailed my hopes of completing a degree, but the school was kind enough to tabulate the credits I did earn and grant me a graduate certificate.
I am grateful to Dr. Scot McKnight, who invited me to attend the school, and for each professor and student from whom I was privileged to learn. I may not have achieved the goal I’d dreamed of, but I am celebrating the encouragement I received to continue to grow, learn, question, and gain confidence to add my voice to theological conversations. I loved every moment of my time at the school, and hope at some point to return, at least to audit a course or two.
There is no end to the opportunity to learn and grow in the knowledge of the infinite God. I am grateful seminary gave me new conversation partners and new experiences in the pursuit of knowing him more. He alone is worthy.
