I had what I thought was a good idea. I wanted to work on a Master’s degree, so I started attending classes at a local branch of our state university. Everything about this plan made sense, or so I thought. But after only a few classes, I began to wonder if this might not have been the best idea after all.
Where do you turn when you don’t know what to do? Maybe to a parent or a friend? Someone who knows more than you do? I knew I needed some advice or guidance, so I decided to have a chat with the head of the department where I was studying. I poured out my story and my concerns, wanting him to tell me about my options and my future. He listened thoughtfully, but instead of offering advice, he asked if I knew the hymn “Lead kindly light.”
