Good News for Me!

Assuming enrollment remains steady, I have a gig teaching a section of a college freshmen Intro to Religion course next semester!

I told the department chair that in my fantasy life, I pastor a church, do a little spiritual direction, and teach a college course once or twice a year.  Well . . . he said.

We're waiting for the church part to fall into place, I responded.  The big piece.

But I'm very excited about this.  Right up my alley, to usher college students into what for most of them will be their first experience with an academic approach to religion.

(And yes, Karen West, a Jesuit University.)

  6. cool, may all the pieces fall into place. Here in PA a fraction of an inch of snow caused a rush hour nightmare for many today. As for me I don't think I would want to choose between shoveling and studying for law school
