Change is in the Air

Peace, one and all…


There’s been a fair bit of activity at work in recent weeks.  The Head of School is leaving for pastures new, and this has means changes are in the air.

Firstly, it’s been confirmed that I’ll be teaching my 2nd year undergraduate course, entitled Shia Islam: History & Theology.  It’s due to start in September 2007.  I’m actually excited by this prospect.  It will be hard work, for sure, but it’ll be something to sink my teeth into.  Al hamdu lillahi ala kulli hal.  It does mean that my summer months will be very busy.  Insha Allah, I plan to spend the time in Lampeter and London, using the libraries there. 

I’ve also been asked to teach some courses for Lifelong Learning in September too!  I’ve been asked to design and teach a module on Judaism, Christianity and Islam.  The working title is The Abrahamic Faiths, and at present I’m planning to take a thematic approach.  There are also a few other things in the pipeline at the moment.  More info as I get it insha Allah.

All this with a new baby on the way!

And God’s help is to be sought in all things…

Ma’as salama,
Abdur Rahman
