Did I win the Judo tournament? Nope.
Did I place? Nope.
Did I even go? Nope.

Some answered prayer, uh? Well, my prayers havenít, but the prayers of everyone around me has. Most everyone has been praying I will actually STUDY for school. As I was packing up yesterday, I looked out at all the work I had to do for the end of the Semester, and realized I cannot afford to skip a whole day of work. I just let it all pile up. One thing is for sure, Iíve learned my lesson, time is precious. I missed one of the Biggest Tournaments in the country because I slacked off! Hard lesson learned. Study for things the day you go to class, start on research ASAP, stay awake in class. I have my work-out buddies making sure I do my work, haha.

So, Praise God, Prayers have been answered. Now, Iím off to study more Undecided

Haha, I shouldn't have said anything, now I'm never going to hear the end of it! Grin lol j/k

For real, how do you mean? The Archdeacon and the Bishop spend Their free time sword fighting in the Church Parking lot. Grin We are talking about a Province where the Bishops right hand man has maps of Middle Earth Framed and hung on his office wall, and a mini-recording studio in the youth room. This is a Church where, when one of the Priest was teaching a class on Saints for those new to Catholicism (There where a bunch), he continued to joke about Teaching St. Johnny Cash, because he is the only one you need! Grin Do you see a problem with Judo, or do you think Catholics see a problem with Judo?

Willow- Now you are going to make me cry... except for a few swords and maps of middle earth and recording studio's and praying to dead music stars, Catholics aren't all that odd.  Wink Grin Then again, maybe it is just us...

That is why you need to stop by the Theology board more Wink

Kinda-sorta. I have to get my Bachelors first, so, yes and no. Yes, Iím studying, and at the same time Iím planning on getting my Priesthood, but no, I'm not directly "studying to be a priest" in the Seminary sense.

Hmm, I got distracted by the "cares of this world" (for those who have read the parable of the sower--which obviously wouldn't include anyone studying for the ministry  Grin Roll Eyes).

Um, it's just that "judo" and, um, "priesthood" when combined, conjure up a slightly different image?  Maybe?

Sort of like "military intelligence", maybe?   Roll Eyes

PLUS, whatever you spend too much time learning, you tend to have to justify, which means you have to start using it somewhere.   Roll Eyes

Do you see where I'm going with this?

Yeah.. Kinda of... Not really...

I donít see there being anything to justify. Correcting someone when you are challenged is one thing, justifying your hobby is another. Everyone has the right to have hobbies, whether youíre a High Schooler, a Priest, a Doctor, or whatever. Iím donít think they should mix, no. I think Public office, Priest, politician, etc, has to keep a level of professionalism, yes. Iím not going to hold impromptu Classes on the Sanctuary floor. I'm not going to get mad at a church goer and Ogoshi him thru the window! But I donít believe God bars us from having hobbies, because we are Christians, especially those in ministry, who no doubt need to unwind more then most! God made us, and the things we enjoy doing is part of us. It just so happens I enjoy rolling on the floor in thick, hemp bath robes Wink
