I don’t look like I should be a masters student, at least not an MA in theology student. Maybe an MFA, or something such. I look like a professional slacker, or so I’ve been told. My boss has a had time reconciling what I look like and what he knows I am. I think its […]

summer term


I love my class. Patristics is wonderful, and I’m putting all of that work from Trinity and Christology to good use. But I hate summer terms.

Thus begins another summer of what Doc likes to call “church shopping.” Not that I want to leave the Catholic church, (I tried that once, but I know this is where the truth is and couldn’t leave if I tried, but that’s a different post) but preaching isn’t a gift that every pastor has, certainly […]
