From time to time I post my work on Academia.edu, so you can wander over there to peruse my papers. Here you can multimedia offerings (papers and their accompanying slideshows) along with a few papers.
Not in Anyone’s Backyard:
The Ethics of Where Our Garbage Goes
In July 2015 I made a seminar presentation about ecotheology and Earthcare ethics that works with Ched Myers idea of watershed discipleship and incorporates the question: What is a “garbageshed”? Take a look at this brief video walkthrough of the basic concepts I introduced into the conversation of Mennonite Creation Care. I hope to develop this introductory presentation in something larger for AMBS’s 2015 Rooted & Grounded conference. As I continue to work with this idea of garbagesheds, I expect to dig deeper into environmental justice ethics. Stay tuned….
“Finding Wisdom in Her Lap: Mary as Alma Mater”
a paper presented at My Spirit Rejoices in God My Savior: Mary in Anabaptist Dress, Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary, 2011
Partially in response to the controversy brewing in the Coalition of/Coalition for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU) about two members’, Eastern Mennonite University and Goshen College, voluntary commitment to non-discrimination in hiring and partially because I wanted to get some feminist theology posted to this site, I have dusted off a presentation I prepared in Spring 2011 and shared again in Fall 2014. See what you think!
“The Gifts of an Extended Theological Table”
final version published in A Table of Sharing: Mennonite Central Committee and the Expanding Networks of Mennonite Identity edited by Alain Epp Weaver, 2011
Since 2008, I have been working articulating what I call organic Mennonite theology. This is primarily a method but also includes content found in the World Community Cookbook series created by Mennonite Central Committee and published by MennoMedia’s Herald Press.
”Shalom Political Theology:
A Style of Mennonite Peace Theology”
I have posted a Research Note that includes the précis to my dissertation, that outlines some of the theological questions I hope my approach to peace theology responds to. I’ve been told that it’s very readable!
There is also an essay-length distillation of my approach to peace theology in the Winter 2016 issue of Conrad Grebel Review.
