The Teachee has become the Teacher

It has been good to be back in Savannah. Not much has changed since we were here five years ago, but that is often the case with a city that prides itself on her history–and fried chicken by Paula Deen. What has changed is what I am doing in Savannah vocationally.

I am a strong believer in the providential hand of God. Now, I did not say deterministic hand of God. Though I leave room for God to direct events or circumstances exactly as he wants regardless of what I desire, I think providence is different. Providence is the ever-quotable Romans 8:28 at work. God is working out things for the good of those who love him and for his glory. In other words, I can make a dumb decision and there will be some good that comes out of it. That’s simplified for time’s sake.

Via a winding road of mutual acquaintances (and therein the hand of God), I will be finishing out this semester as a teacher of theology and humanities for Veritas Academy, a classical Christian school here in town. I am very excited for this opportunity and look forward to the experience of teaching and building relationships with students. I will have three classes: 8th grade, 9/10, and 11/12. This wasn’t something I could have predicted, but it’s absolutely something I am thrilled about.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to prepare for class.
