I’ve been teaching at Whitley College for just over a year now. During that time, I’ve formed a heap of impressions about the place. Here’s ten of ’em: It is a community soaked in the rhythms and practices of prayer and of Bible reading. On Mondays,…

This all seems to ring true for women clergy too, for whom I’m sure that a number of further statements might be added. I’m not confident, brave, or stupid enough to speak for them, but invite their comments below. On a more serious note, I’m really glad…

Over these past days, I have been reminded again that at our best, to be human, and to be human community, is to live betwixt and between muddle and ambiguity. We are, unavoidably, marked by profound inconsistencies and misdirected hopes. We are an enigma…

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.
