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.
