… the hermeneutrix
HAT (Heather Anne Thiessen, M.Div., Ph.D.), a happily married 60-ish, Bible-reading, Presbyterian Church Sunday School teaching and choir singing, small fuel efficient car driving, still pretty much 2nd wave feminist and generally out lesbian Hoosier mom. (No states are all one color.) After spending a lot of time in school, I was finally compelled to graduate. From time to time I teach religious studies to undergraduates at a small liberal arts college in Louisville, Kentucky.
… Matters of Interpretation
Matters of Interpretation began July 27, 2016, for the purpose of “thinking out loud” a little more publicly, mostly for the sake of practice, and possibly also for the sake of being a little more responsible and adult.
It has mostly evolved into a place to post notes on the weekly Sunday school lesson for the class that meets at our church on Sundays at “the not-so-early hour of 9:00 a.m.” The notes need to be made anyway, and a few members of the class have politely said they find them useful. Anyone else who, like our class, is using the “Uniform Series International Bible Lessons for Christian Study,” also known as the Uniform Series or Standard Lessons, is welcome to use them.
If the blog has any other purpose, that will presumably become clearer in time.
Matters of Interpretation is the successor to an earlier blog, Utopian Discourse. Because the internet is forever, its map still contains that little patch of thought about utopia. Like so much other utopian discourse, that instance takes place in the present as a memory.
