Conferencing and Blogging

WritingI do intend to return to active blogging soon. Really. Seriously. This semester has been quite busy so far, with our buying our first home along with my ‘normal’ duties of PhD coursework, research assistance, teaching Sunday School, leading a community group, managing Conciliar Post, and staying on top of all my other writings and projects.

My next two weekends are particularly busy, as I have two conference presentations. Tomorrow I present a paper titled “Blogging Ecumenically: The Present and Future of Online Orthodox-Catholic Dialogue” at the “That They May Be One: The Past, Present, and Future of Orthodox-Catholic Relations” conference, hosted by Saint Louis University and the St. Irenaeus Orthodox Theological Institute. This paper is based on my experiences as Managing Editor at Conciliar Post and the interaction of our Orthodox and Catholic writers there.

Next weekend a SLU colleague and I drive out to Philadelphia to attend the Patristic, Medieval, and Renaissance Conference on Scriptural Imagination, hosted by Villanova University. My paper for this conference is “Saint Patrick’s Scriptural Imagination” and examines Patrick’s scriptures and the central place they hold in the formation of his theological mind. I’m very excited about this conference and the chance to hear lots of papers on the role of scripture in the history of Christianity. If you’ll be at PMR, leave me a comment and we can arrange a meeting.

I intend to share these papers (or at least portions of them) on and here before too terribly long. And (again), I’ll be back to active writing as soon as I can carve regular writing time into my schedule. Thanks for following along.
