I am so grateful to be able to announce that I have passes my qualifying exams and am officially ABD as they say (all but dissertation). This has been an incredible journey and this last year has really challenged me in new ways. I have learned some valuable lessons along the way.

I also wanted to let you know that I will be returning to the blogosphere – but with a little twist. I’m going to be shifting my emphasis from ‘navigating between the everyday and theology’ to a ‘public theology’. David Tracy talked about theology having three publics: the church, the academy, and the culture. I am going to experiment with rotating between these 3 areas of focus and labeling each post accordingly.

I think that this rotation will add an interesting texture to the conversation here. I am excited to be back and look forward to returning to a dialogue that I have missed greatly.
