We had study time in the morning, and class with Dr. Bauman in the afternoon, once he finally got here. We jumped right back into our discussion of abortion, followed by a lecture on civil rights. In Brit Lit, we’re in the middle of studying Chaucer, currently looking at the Canterbury Tales. After dinner we had a lecture on the Second Century Church Fathers Tertullian and Justin Martyr.
I’m loving Bauman’s classes. His sarcasm and wit keep things amusing, and he’s always challenging if we really know what we say we believe. We have to think hard about everything, and sometimes we leave class with more questions than answers, but it is amazing. Having a semester to wrestle through deep questions in community, focusing not only on academics but also on personal growth and discipleship, is absolutely amazing. I am so glad I am here.
