am at an academic conference. This is not the way you start a blog if you want people to keep reading. I am at an exciting academic conference. Well, now everyone knows that I am just lying. I am going to keep this introduction boring. I am at an academic conference this week. It is the annual gathering of the Society for the Study of Theology. This gathering is most of the theologians in the UK and many others from Europe and around the world. It is quite an interesting place to be with many fascinating topics being discussed.
