Prayer Request!

The philosopher in my life just found out he has a job interview for a tenure-track position at a small liberal arts college! Please pray for him as he prepares for the interview, that he may clearly present himself and his abilities. Pray for the interviewers' discernment. Pray for safe travels to Philadelphia, as the interview will take place at the Eastern APA meeting on December 30. Finally, pray that we follow God's plan - not ours - and that if this is meant to be the path forward becomes clear.

I'm trying not to be too excited, because I know that this is just one step among many. But the field of philosophy is very competitive right now, and going from one-in-300 to one-in-ten is a huge step forward.

Blessed Advent!

Are we allowed to know what area of the country, or does that have to wait?

It's in North Carolina... if it goes any further I'll post more details! 8-)

Definitely in our prayers! I'm in awe that your husband is actually paid to do something that fun!

Well, at least we HOPE he will get paid for it! 8-) We've been blessed to have the means for him to take the last year or so off to write a book (about the philosophic life and classical education) but he's really ready to get back into the classroom now. And we're really ready for him to have a paycheck again, too!
