'The Muddy Trench'

In the dream, Clarrie Dunn sits naked with many thousands in the muddy trench. He is saying The true god gives his flesh and blood. Idols demand yours off you. – Les Murray, ‘The Muddy Trench’, in Collected Poems (Melbourne: Black Inc., 2006), 554.

Marilynne Robinson on providence, joy, and sorrow

“‘Then the reasons that things happen are still hidden, but they are hidden in the mystery of God.’ I can’t read my own writing. No matter. ‘Of course misfortunes have opened the way to blessings you would never have thought to hope for, that you would…

'Amish Economy'

The best thing about a lecture is always what gets left behind after class. Good teachers hope that what gets left behind keeps being discovered (and corrected and discarded and developed and etc.) for many decades yet, but today it just happened to be…

For the culturally-Jewish philosopher Theodor Adorno, the traumas of Auschwitz mean that ‘we can no longer affirm the immutability of truth and the transience of materiality’. It’s not, he insists, a case of an impossibility of distinguishing between…

Story
Introduction

Jason Goroncy is a pastor, theologian, and historian who teaches at Whitley CollegeUniversity of Divinity, in Melbourne.

Among his many affections – not all of which are fully appreciated by his partner and their three begats – are cooking (especially Indian and Sri Lankan dishes), reading, visual arts, bushwalking, whisky, folk music, ornithology, and fishing (with a strong preference for fly fishing, on the basis of the undisputed fact that ‘all first-class fishermen on the Sea of Galilee were fly fishermen’ (Norman Maclean)). He cheers for the Chelsea Football Club, the Western Bulldogs, the Sri Lankan Cricket Team, and the Boston Red Sox, and he believes in the superiority of old-fashioned shaving cream, leather shoes, cotton shirts, and loose-leaf tea. He has a strong preference for home-roasted coffee beans, and for second-hand clothing (e.g., his favourite pair of pyjamas once belonged to a ‘Mr Ron Baker’). His golf game was much improved after reading John Updike’s essays  ‘Walking Insomnia’ and ‘Lost Balls’.

In addition to various journal articles, book chapters, and reviews, Jason is also the author of Hallowed be Thy Name: The Sanctification of All Things in the Soteriology of P. T. Forsyth (T&T Clark, 2013), and has edited ‘Descending on Humanity and Intervening in History’: Notes from the Pulpit Ministry of P. T. Forsyth (Pickwick Publications, 2013), and Tikkun Olam – To Mend the World: A Confluence of Theology and the Arts (Pickwick Publications, 2014).

Jason blogs at Per Crucem ad Lucem and he moderates the G+ Theology Group.
