Newcastle University

I am still here in the land of the living and, although my internet access is still limited to the local library, I haven't slacked off in terms of my thinking. I have been put in touch with the head of the theology department at Newcastle University and on May 6th I am meeting John McDowell to discuss transferring my Masters across to Newcastle and also to plan ahead for my doctoral thesis.

I am really excited about the potential for expanding my research and John seems to be open to a broader theological perspective which will allow me to explore the intersections of theology, exegesis and culturally-imposed worldviews. I will keep you posted on the journey.

Thanks for all the comments and emails over the last couple of months. I have been encouraged in all aspects of my life.

Sacramental Theology

I am beginning to explore Sacramental Theology and Liturgy. I am on the beginning of the learning curve but wish to explore this issue both from a theological perspective and also to understand how sacrament helps those who are spiritual seekers to connect with "mystery" and "otherness".

I am hopeful that you, my faithful readership, can be a part of the process by sending or recommending resources that I can utilize.

I am going to my first ever Anglican service this coming Sunday morning.

Thank you as well for all of the love and encouragement I have received these past few weeks.
