Hoping to start school soon

I'm supposed to have a phone interview with the Director of Learning Strategies at the Academy for Missional Wisdom sometime this week. It's affiliated with the Methodist Church, although you don't have to be Methodist to take courses. Most of it will be online, but we will get together every so often at retreats to discuss what we're learning and things like that. (Although to save on travel expenses, Ryan, who went through the training himself a few years ago, has offered to be my "instructor" of sorts and sort of guide me and whoever else would like to join.)

It sounds like a really interesting course and a way for me to learn how to be of service in my new church and community. I've also signed up to take a five-week class in Methodism at the church (it's one class a week, starting next Sunday). I think it'll be good for me to start getting involved again.
