As long as I've been writing my blog, the discussion of my journey to become a master catechist has sprinkled these pages. I have been working on this certification since July 2005 and have plugged along taking one or 2 courses at a time. Early this spring, I was approaching the required number of courses along with the other activities, such as attending spirituality events, teaching adults, and attending diocesan events. Doing all these things and the courses, I made my formal application for MC. The diocese told me that my courses didn't include 4 topics that were required. I had fallen in love with Ecclesiology and took too many of them and an extra Church History course, so I needed to take an additional 4 courses to finish.
Granted, I was totally discouraged, exhausted and took a few weeks to shake it off and reconsider things. Then swallowing my impatience, I signed up for 2 courses, paid for them and bought the books. I then plotted out the other 2 courses and discussed this with the diocese and it was approved. The first 2 courses went well, the third course was a breeze, 2 days before the 4th and FINAL course, I receive an email from the university of which I am taking these courses informing me that "due to low enrollment, the ecumenism course has been cancelled. The next ecumenism course is next year.
Is there a message here? Just wondering.
