Personal/Theological Notebook: Dissertation Defense Scheduled

Chicago: Signature Room Night Skyline
The dissertation defense was scheduled today, with incredible painlessness. I had expected to have to trek back and forth, negotiating between people's busy schedules, but I went right down the list and clarity appeared with no effort whatsoever. So on Friday the afternoon of April 9th, 2010, from 230-430pm, I will lay it all out in front of Professors Fahey, Carey, Wood, Mattox and Mueller and discover the final worth of the project. It's an ecclesiological Dream Team, so it will be kind of amazing to have that much attention given to the work, and to hear entirely unexpected perspectives on it, despite whatever foreshadowing I've had from Fahey and from talks with Sullivan. Looking forward to it!

Today was the 14th anniversary of Grandma Novak's death: it doesn't seem possible that it could have been so long.

You'll be in my prayers for the defense.

It might be the only time you're all together in one room, so definitely good to look at it as an opportunity!

Yes, although the "all together in one room" part just got a little more disappointing for me, as my next entry mentions.

But I'll appreciate the prayers for the occasion: it'll still be the same good faculty experience.
