Not Dead Yet...

Watch this space...I'm still kicking, still reading, just not been blogging as much. But still have some things to say here and there.

Here's one fun tidbit: an article from the theologian Donna Freitas on the deeply theological roots of Philip Pullman's Dark Materials series from today's Globe.http://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gif

Hi, I tried e-mailing this, but then realized I've no idea what your address is. So here it again.

Brian (I think I saw that that’s what your name was, but if I’m mistaken, apologies)—
Hi, my name’s Andy Buechel and I was given the name of your blog the other day by a priest friend of mine here in Atlanta who I think you may have met. Fr. Patrick Scully SM (Marist, not Marianist). Anyhoo, I’m a first-year PhD student at Emory, also gay, and hoping to do my doctoral work (eventually) on Catholic ecclesiology. I see that you just got you doctorate (a thousand congratulations!) and that it may be along lines sort of like that. So I guess I’m just curious if you have any suggestions, ideas, comments, warnings (ie, RUN!) while I’m in this very early stage.

For a bit more on me, I’m down here working with Mark Jordan particularly, but I got my MTS at Notre Dame and have a pretty good grounding in the Tradition. So now I’m sort of brushing up on my post-modern stuff. Brushing up meaning learning for the first time ever.

I saw that you applied to several Catholic schools. Were any of them interested? I’m pretty much resigned to avoiding teaching in a Catholic school, though I definitely want to do Catholic theology.

Anyway, I’m sure you’re ungodly busy, so no rush. I’d just appreciate any thoughts that you might have. Good luck!
