What have you learned about yourself as a teacher during the Covid-19 crisis? In helping prepare online worship, I’ve learned some things about technology and how difficult it can be, at times, for an online meeting platform to be expressive and poetic; but I’ve also learned fresh things about paying attention to a given medium and allowing it to reveal what it’s capable of.

Words to live by? Everywhere a metaphor.


Favorite biblical text? Genesis 12. Blessed to be a blessing (my shorthand for the story.)


What do you like about teaching at Austin Seminary? Everything!

Why did you choose your field? The Hebrew Bible has to best stories! And I had lots of questions about them when I encountered them at church. But as happens so often, my questions were not taken very seriously or were deemed annoying and it was only when I started taking academic classes on the Bible as an undergrad, that my questions were finally addressed. And that's, in part, why I became a Biblicist!

What have you learned about yourself as a teacher during Covid-19? That my assumption that technology is evil is not wholly correct, and that, at times, it can be used for good. And that I can indeed teach online, and even enjoy it! Amazing!
