More than 3 years since my last post has hardly been a challenge for most, I’m sure, but here we are. I wanted this blog as a discipline and practice to hone my writing, and to be able to further communicate out my podcasting work (hobby?).
Two days ago, May 18th, 2020, I learned I was done with my Ph.D. in New Testament studies. That means this is the first week of a new era! It has been a long road to this point. Though I am disappointed at the inability to enjoy an in-person commencement in the coming days, the piece of paper will read just the same. Plus, I’ll get a chance to actually walk in a ceremony in the Fall or next Spring.
With the dissertation off my plate, I’ll be able to do more of what I would like to do at this point: my job, for starters, plus a hobby or two, and more writing here. If you are still subscribed to this feed: hello! And thank you for forgetting to drop this inactive blog from your subscriptions, haha.
Regarding the podcasts, they have both been on hiatus since 2018 in order to allow me to complete my primary responsibilities. Either one, or both, could come back in similar or fresh forms. If you’re unfamiliar with them, I encourage you to look up “An Oral History of the Church” and “Saints Gone Before” on your podcast app of choice or by clicking through to their pages on this site.
I’ve had thoughts percolating on various writing projects I could try to tackle, so please stay subscribed if you might be curious about my thoughts on the intersection of faith, biblical studies, history, theology, culture, and even pop culture. Blessings to you!
