Setting Goals 2017
Hopefully in a couple of years, Greek will find its place and gain traction among faculty and students. Teaching aside, my personal goals for 2017 are modest. I have already started to put them in place. On my non-teaching days (3 days week) I will spend an hour of Bible Study with particular emphasis on the Greek Septuagint. My second goal is also Greek-focused, that is reading ancient Greek for an hour a day using A Reading Course in Homeric Greek. Reading Hebrew OT and Greek NT is a given but in 2017 I hope to be more consistent especially when I am preparing for sermons and like. Spiritual goals are same as before, being more constant in prayers and hopefully setting time twice a day just for prayers, morning and evening. I hope by 2018, I will do the Daniel's thrice a day prayer with windows opened towards Jerusalem though in the age of grace, we stand before the heavenly Jerusalem and wherever and whenever we pray in Jesus' Name our prayers are heard by our heavenly Father. So the twin-goal for 2017, three hours Septuagint Bible reading a week and three hours of Ancient Greek (Homeric Greek) and by year's end, I hope these goals will be met by the grace of God.
