Hello, I'm Griffin!

Some information...

I am a seminarian at Duke Divinity School, pursuing a Masters of Divinity and discerning ordination within the Episcopal Church. Though my interests vary, from public theology to tracing theosis in Paul, behind them lies one essential burden: seeing a need to bridge the gap between the Church and the academy, particularly in how discipleship is articulated in our contemporary moment.

About the Blog...

In Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander, Thomas Merton writes that "If there is no risk in revelation, if there is no fear in it, if there is no challenge in it, if it is not a word which creates a whole new world, and new beginnings, if it does not call into existence a new creature, our new self, then religion is dead and God is dead." This blog is an attempt to imaginatively contemplate that whole new world: asking difficult questions of the Scriptures so as to wrestle with God in the textual gaps.

Awe enables us to perceive in the world intimations of the divine, to sense the ultimate in the common and the simple; to feel in the rush of the passing the stillness of the eternal. What we cannot comprehend by analysis, we become aware of in awe.
— Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel
