This blog originally was a repository for my first ramblings as a seminarian in Summer Greek. It served as a way to keep family and friends aware of my joys, struggles, needs, and epiphanies that came fast and furious during those early days. As my time at Seminary grew long, so did my posts.
Eventually family and academic needs drained my time and energy to post. There was the occasional retire or repost but little original content. Or perhaps I got bored? There was also a small pressure to keep my opinions to myself especially as I came closer to placement.
The blog was reawakened with placement, call, ordination, and installation. There was much news to tell. My desire to blog ideas and thoughts came back albeit briefly. Again, duties drew me away and there was little motivation.
As part of my seminary residency, I began and completed all but the thesis portion of a Masters of Sacred Theology (S.T.M.) in addition to the earned Masters of Divinity (M.Div). The program has an expiry that is rapidly approaching. As such, I will need to complete the thesis to earn the degree.
Now, the current. I’m going to use this blog as a landing pad for research, reflections, and questions. You will be seeing posts that will broadly consider church architecture and its specific theological implications. Some of the primary research is already complete but much yet remains.
Feel free to interact with the material as little or as much as you like. If you have ideas, questions, or your own reflections, I would appreciate you posting them so that I’m not dialoguing with myself inside a study bubble.
