MY SECRET OBSESSION


Tonight I have been doing my usual putting off of the important things that I "ought" to be doing in favor of looking at websites that I know will get me in trouble and I should not be looking at, especially late at night when no one is around....


Have you guessed? It is confession time.....


It's true. I've been looking at random websites again, trying to find something of interest when I really need to be wrapping up our last youth fundraiser and designating which youth receives which funds/credits.

But I stumbled onto something beautiful!!!! I couldn't believe my eyes. I tried to click "back" really fast so that I wouldn't be tempted to stay at the site and look. I could feel my heart beginning to beat faster and anxious warmth creeping all over my entire body.... was anyone looking?

YES.... I'm going to stay and look and see what it is. And it is .....






The Theology Co-op Forum- a blog by John Milbank, Connor Cunningham, Catherine Pickstock and Tony Baker- all theologians and thinkers within the Radical Orthodoxy conversation. SWEET!!!! ENJOY!!! Now you have found out my secret obsession- I AM A TOTAL NERD WHEN IT COMES TO FINDING A THEOLOGIAN'S BLOG!!! (fascinated in a totally platonic way).

It's been TOTALLY fun to talk with Conor Cunningham a little bit on that site. I think the reason Conor even started posting is because I invoked him in an earlier discussion as giving good reasons in his Genealogy of Nihilism for reading people outside of "our respective ghetto," as he would say.

Have you read his Genealogy of Nihilism? I liked it much better than the RO reader, although there were some really outstanding essays in there (Cavanaugh's, Blond's, Ward's, to name a few). GoN is highly recommended. I love how he writes and makes efforts to help explain what is going on. I'm really looking forward to his next book.

Peace,

Eric

Addendum: If only Milbank and Pickstock would actually contribute a little bit to the blog, it would probably be a little more interesting, too.

yeah, maybe we should both harass them through email to begin contributing!! :)
