Today was the first session of a new module in mentoring being piloted at/by the Scottish Baptist College, and which I am taking. Whilst I find it hard not to groan at the prospect of yet another round of enforced theological journalling (sorry Stuart, this is year 11 and the umpteenth iteration of this...) I am looking forward to what the module has to offer.
It was good to see the college 'in the flesh' and to meet those who I'd only spoken to on the phone or in the ether, and good to meet some other ministers with varying experiences of mentoring/supervising those involved in workplace/work-based learning. It was interesting to compare how students here work with how I was trained/formed in Manchester and I will at some point give some time to reflecting more on this.
However, I am not sure whether to be amused or annoyed that the University of the West of Scotland cannot spell my first name... I mean, c'mon, it's not like it's English or anything...
Anyway, a good day all in all.
