Matters of Interpretation

About

Matters of Interpretation

I post notes, questions, and thoughts on what I read, from where I read it, in case someone else might find them interesting, or helpful.

These normally include notes and questions for the weekly scripture text we’re studying in the adult class that meets at the “not-that-early hour of 9:00 a.m.” on Sundays at the Corydon Presbyterian Church in Corydon, Indiana.

Contact me for the Zoom link if you’d like to join us and see what it’s all about. Physical, geographical location seems to be irrelevant these days, and you’ll be more than welcome.

Other matters surface occasionally.

I’m HAT (Heather Anne Thiessen, M.Div., Ph.D.), a happily married, Bible-reading, Presbyterian Church Sunday School teaching and choir singing missing, small fuel efficient car driving, still pretty much 2nd wave feminist and generally out white lesbian Hoosier mom. (That’s too Christian for some, not Christian enough for others.) From time to time I teach religious studies to undergraduates at a small liberal arts college in Louisville, Kentucky. Reading is my life. “Context is everything.”

… utopian discourse

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, it takes place in the present as memory.
