Developing Humility

So, just a couple minutes ago I sent the paper I will be presenting next week off to the person who will respond to it. The way these things work in academic circles is that you write something. someone else reads it, and after you have given your presentation, they get up and respond to you. You don't know what their critique is going to be or even what questions you will get. Honestly, it is a bit nerve racking and can cause me to worry a lot about what the response will be.

Having a Correct Judgment

I have felt the same way these first few months in Edinburgh. When I first started out, I really didn't know what I needed to be doing. So, I just started reading. I really didn't know what I was supposed to be reading, but I knew I should be reading. I also figured reading Bavinck would be good.
