Not only the travel, but the transition from the church back into the academy has been a little jarring. However, the time away has given me a fresh perspective and has renewed my energy to get moving.

Humor and Theology

A couple of weeks ago my supervisor, James Eglinton, and I (with some other students) were having a conversation about the place of humor in theology.

Anniversaries, Pains, Highs, and Lows

This year, August is a month of celebration in the Clausing house. At the beginning of this month we had the anniversary of our wedding. On Tuesday, the 22nd, we celebrated one year in Edinburgh (time flies). Tomorrow, the 25th, we celebrate the anniversary of my ordination as a Teaching Elder in the Presbyterian Church in America. These moments are always good times to reflect.
