"The Surprising Secret to Total Invincibility"

To the naked eye: completely vulnerable. In the eyes of the Holy Spirit: totally invincible. Complete vulnerability, a stripping away of everything not ultimately real, until there’s only the bare image bearer of God.

"It’s an Icebreaker …Get it?!"

There is only one way to improve the typical ice breaker: add ice… and puns. We’ll leave the punny title to you, but this icebreaker is a lot of fun and no-prep!

"How Much Hope is In Change?"

For some reason, for several days the following excerpt from Wendell Berry’s writings has kept circulating through my brain. It’s a longish passage, but one I come back to over and over, and can’t totally figure out why. I think this passage says something to us in the scholarly vocation, but I cannot yet shape it into words. The passages come from Berry’s Sex, Economy, Freedom and Community: Eight Essays.

"Stepping Stones of Spiritual Growth"

John Dunne, a contemporary theologian at Notre Dame, talked about the principle of “pass over” as a process of discovery and growth. This principle has nothing to do with Jewish “Passover.” Dunne said it is good to “pass over” into someone else’s experience, then return, enriched with new insight about your own. I adopted his principle of “pass over” as a way to be on my sabbatical.
