view from the hall
So I really did not mean to take a whole week off posting. But I've been in class the last few days and of course, when I arrived, I was not able to get online in my room (still am not). So I surf quietly during class, and do email, and skype, and today am finally and quietly trying to post. Not that I have amazing things to say. For those of you who don't know, I'm getting a second MA from Aquinas Institute of Theology in Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. Aquinas, as you would know from its name, is Catholic and fairly liberally so. I'm in the middle of Intro to Theology with a plain closed Dominican nun. So far we've covered feminism, liberationism, fundamentalism and a couple of other isms. There's also been some nice digs about protestantism and the reformation. But what most sticks in my mind at this point is the stretching of the Immaculate Conception to undermine and erode away at the doctrine of original sin. I did not quite understand what she was talking about and need to dig around to find out. If you have heard to this please jump and let me know. Oh, break, good, I'm starving.
