09:09 am - CTP 2 completed
I received word this morning that my Ethics 1 course, the last outstanding course for my Clergy Training Program Circle 2 work, has been approved. I cleaned up the document (removed comments and such that were a byproduct of the grading) and sent it back in, so an announcement should go out later today.

I'm very proud of the work I did on this circle, particularly on Ethics 1, actually (I was afraid that I would be stuck in endless re-writes on this course, and I ended up with only one minor re-write to contribute). I have found that I have been able to use this training beyond my roles in ADF, and much of it has worked its way into my secular work life as well.

This does several things for me: 1) it puts another Circle of training behind me and allows me to really dig into the next round of courses without worrying about re-writes on previously-submitted courses; 2) organizationally, it provides me with demonstrated work for further extensions of my clergy credentials (I am entering my third year as an ADF Priest now); and 3) it gives me a much-needed confidence boost to keep myself on-track for course completion.

I saw real personal growth as I worked my way through this Circle. I'm a very different person now than I was three years ago, and I think that is for the better. I look forward to the changes that come from my work on CTP3.

Tomorrow, I'll be updating my website, Chronarchy.Com in preparation of this new Circle of training. It has been a full year since I last updated the front page with new material (rather than just course completions), and I am looking forward to several changes in the way the page is built and the focus on it.

Congratulations! Do you have a completion date in mind for CTP3?

Ethics 1 is the first I submitted for CTP2 and its been in rewrites since July! Most of that was my fault, I thought I'd resubmitted the first week of August and didn't realize until last month that I hadn't.

In the meantime I've completed nearly every other course but I can't submit them because we can only submit one at a time. Very frustrating.

Hopefully whoever will be grading the rest of my CTP2 will be pretty quick in returning them to me. I want to move on to CTP3 as soon as possible (before beginning my PhD program next year).
