I suspect that if you’re worried about what might be covered this semester in terms of your own understanding of faith, what you’re actually worried is that what you’ve been told might not stand up to scrutiny.
Last year, I stopped writing. Previously, I’ve always looked at Writers Block as a way of diagnosing that something has gone wrong with my story.
