I just got back from Crawfordsville, Indiana for the first of my three sessions with the Wabash Center for Teaching and Learning in Theology and Religion. The Center really knows how to create a space that is generative for reflection on our pedagogies; I already have lots of ideas for when I get back into the classroom this Spring! I’m looking forward to reuniting with the leaders and my cohort at our January session in Corpus Christi, Texas.
A big thanks to all the staff for all their organizing and hospitality!
It has been one year since my edited collection on young adult Catholics has come out. The reports for the first six months (the second six months are not yet out) show that it has sold well at nearly 200 copies. Since then, there is also an e-book version (at about half of the price if you buy it from the Paulist website).
It was reviewed in the National Catholic Reporter and featured on The CARA Report, a quarterly newsletter published by the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate. I’ve spoken about the findings at several venues, including an upcoming invitation to use the book in a keynote address at a young adult Catholics conference in Scottsdale, Arizona.
It is really great to see hard work become helpful to so many.
