I spoke at length this week with those in the know at the advisers office and they assured me that it would be fine if I dropped my Greek class and took it at a later date. I was relieved! The class difficulty was not the issue, it was more of a time concern. The semester that I have been in is a mini-semester that lasts 8 weeks. I have been working on 9 credit hours, or 3 classes, Greek, Discipleship Ministries, and Church History I. Concentrating on two classes instead of three has really lifted a lot of stress from the situation.
I am glad that I stayed in the Greek class long enough to learn the alphabet and how to read, or at least decipher, most of the words that I am confronted with in my other classes at the moment. I have uploaded a copy of my syllabus here if you are curious about the requirements for New Testament Greek. Next week I will give more detail about one of other classes and possibly post some of my papers as well.
