I spent some good time with the president of the seminary, Rev Ross Olivier, this afternoon, talking about my programme for the second semester. Apparently I misunderstood about needing to do diploma courses. I'm not going to quibble - I'm just happy that things are looking better. I'll be doing Greek at UKZN, which is what I wanted to do. I think that maybe some of the communication difficulties are just a result of the teething process for the seminary.
I like the flexibility of the 'formation internship programme' and apart from the occasional knocks it is fun to be part of the process of developing the programme. Now I need to hear from UKZN about the PhD stuff.
