On Beginning the "Strange Life"

About a week ago, Owen Strachan of consumed wrote an interesting and helpful series of posts called "The Strange Lives of Seminarians." I read these with special interest and, at times, a feeling of growing trepidation, because I 'm about two months away from officially being "oriented" to this "Strange Life." The internet is surprising pregnant with advice for incoming seminarians, ranging from which churches to visit, and which professors to take and which to avoid, to what to wear to class and how many questions to ask per semester without getting annoying. (Most of) these are things I need to know. Keep it coming, please, thank you!

Some questions, pt.4

Since the craziness of Ashley's and my moving to Louisville, KY, getting jobs, registering for class, and finding the nearest grocery store is over, it's time to post another question I've been thinking about. That is, if I haven't already lost my modest readership...

6. In what way has, per Mark 9:1 (and Matthew 16:28, Luke 9:27) the Kingdom already come in power? I highlight the Mark verse because it adds "in power," making it more difficult to offer an interpretation that there will be a future, more powerful or more glorious state of the Kingdom. Fire away.
