Well, I have just stumbled over the world of blogging and thought I would give it a try.
Although there are no current followers to this blog, I hope some people will join it soon.
I am currently working towards completing my doctoral dissertation at Fordham University in New York.
This doctoral work is being conducted in the Graduate School of Religion and Religious Education. The topic I have chosen concerns a great figure of the first half of the twentieth century in the life of the Coptic Orthodox Church: Archdeacon Habib Jirjis.
It is a long process with many stages. I have completed my coursework and my Qualifying Paper. The Qualifying Paper has been reviewed by my supervising professor and has today been sent to the two readers for their approval.
I have also completed my Thesis Proposal and it has also been reviewed by my supervisor and has been sent to my editor before it goes back to the supervisor and then to the readers. So you can see that each section or chapter goes through a lengthy process before approval is granted.
I am now currently working on chapter four of the thesis that will speak about Archdeacon Habib Jirjis' reform philosophy.
In my next blog I will tell you more about Habib Jirjis and about my thesis.
Thanks for reading and I would love to receive your comments.
