Last night I officially received my Degree in Theology. At South Perth Church of Christ I was presented with the BTh by Professor Ray Nobbs of the Sydney College of Divinity and now…I feel…the same as I did the day before actually!
But I got to wear a hat and a black dress and a coloured hooded cape like thing. But one day if I study and don’t have a life I could get to wear what the Prof got to wear last night!
I am reading the DaVinci Code at the moment and I couldn’t help but get images of cultic men making sacrifices in gold trimmed gowns! (Think back to Dragnet with Tom Hanks Dan Akroid and the pagan ceremony…just a classic movie!) . Well all is ended. It was great to have some family there, I guess I include the Bartletts in that too, those guys are family! The Prof asked me (again) if I would complete my Masters by the end of next year…I said no. He asked if I would be doing further study with the intent of aiming at a PhD. I said, “Well I am thinking about some study, but I don’t think it will get me a PhD, I was thinking about going to TAFE to do a woodworking course…”
He was silent.

Well done. It is awesome that you have finished your theology studies. I pray that God will bless you as you continue to minister to people in the wonderful way that you do; by just being yourself and building relationships. You’re an inspiration to us all. God bless… Melanie Underwood
