The Disappearing Blog

By November 5, 2014 No Comments

So…it’s the classic case of the “computer ate my blog.” Yep, almost done and then wiped out.  I’ll see if I can construct it for next time.

To fulfill my duty as a member of The 12, however, here’s a video one of my former students shared with me yesterday. A short discussion by Brene Brown (apologies–I am further oppressed by technology by being unable to correctly insert the accent in her name)–she of the TED talk on vulnerability fame.

Here she is discussing one thing she learned when she went back to church.  In a season of mourning for so many, I thought this was worth a watch. And a discussion, too.

I am professor and chair of the Calvin University English department, where I have taught a range of courses in literature and composition since 1998. An Army brat, I have come to love my adopted hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Along with my wonderful colleague, Jane Zwart, I am the co-director of the Calvin Center for Faith and Writing, which is the home of the Festival of Faith and Writing as well as a number of other exciting endeavors. Given my interest in teaching, I’m also the founding co-editor of the Duke University Press journal Pedagogy: Critical Approaches to Teaching Literature, Language, Composition and Culture. My book, Nourishing Narratives: The Power of Story to Shape Our Faith, was published in July 2023 by Intervarsity Press.
