Greetings brothers and sisters, honored church leaders.

I am filled with joy at the recent revival of our worship community, and at the sainting of our dear Andy.

For a few days now I have been meaning to post an explanation of why I have been so quiet in this, my chosen church. Not by way of making excuses, but to share with you how my Peejist faith has sustained me throughout this time.

I will be completing my bachelor's degree in just a few weeks now, and in my program we are required to complete an interdisciplinary year-long 10-credit-hour senior thesis. This is essentially a mini-Master's thesis that caps off our four-year self-designed course of study. Suffice it to say this is a long and difficult process and project. My own personal epic, if you will. For the past month or two my life has centered on completing this project. It has involved innumberable late-nighters and several all-nighters, all while having to keep up in my other classes. Just last week I turned in the printed copies, and this week and next I am presenting my work publicly.

No, it is not anywhere near the length of one installment of the Great Work, nor is it near that kind of quality level. It is however the most important, largest scholarly work of my young life and has been quite a trial (one that is not quite over). Throughout this trial of mine I have been sustained and inspired by my faith in and love of the Holy Three. If the Great Peej can do such fantastic work on about four hours of sleep a night for many years, surely even I can do passable or even good work on four hours a night over a period of several weeks. If Peej can be so dedicated, I have thought many a time, surely I don't need to go to sleep just yet -- I can get a little more work done.

I thought I would share this story of how my Peejism has helped and inspired me, and I am curious to hear any similar stories any of my fellow believers may have. We all have our own little epics that are important and huge to us. Do you feel you have been helped in yours by your Peejist beliefs?

Thank you for hearing my little story of faith.

In the name of the Phillipa, the Fran, and the Holy Peter. Epic.

ah, dear fellow cleric, thank you for sharing your story with us, i wish you strength in your time of tribulation.
i have faced many of these dilemmas over the years. however, they are not labors of love as produced by the great peej, but crappy high school papers that i do just for the sake of getting them done. often, however, i do think of the LOTR movies and the great amount of time, care, and effort poured into them by hundreds of talented men and women, and i continue my task with renewed hope. [or i go watch the FOTR and TTT DVD extras and don't do my homework at all.]
epic.

Sometimes when I have monotonous work, or work that really isn't interesting to me, I think of the person whose job it was to link together the little plastic links for all the chain mail. It was an essential part of a wonderful something bigger, but it can't have been very exciting or fun. [and of course the Great Work provides endless procrastination possibilities :) ]
