on the strangeness of my world

pondering the paradox

as a teacher of literature in a state college, i spend most of my time trying to get my students to look beyond biography…

as a teacher of scripture in a restoration movement church, i spend most of my time trying to get the members of the class to pay more attention to person(s) who wrote the various texts we read…
