Why I’m a Person of Faith Despite … Well … People of Faith

DeanMarkuly90x90

Periodically, someone asks me what I do for a living. When I tell them I’m the Dean of a School of Theology and Ministry, more than a few take a reflex step backwards, as if they are standing too close to an infectious organism. A smaller number respond with the smirk of encountering a quaint novelty in an antique shop, wondering perhaps how such anachronistic things could still interest anyone. Perhaps most people, however, change the subject, pretend I didn’t answer their question or they didn’t ask it, or nod awkwardly and walk away. As a former journalist who learned to peer deeply and honestly into the dark side of life, I understand their reactions.

Faculty Profile: Leticia Guardiola-Sáenz, Ph.D.

Leticia90x90

Born and raised in the borderlands of Mexico–U.S., Leticia learned to navigate and inhabit the in-betweenness of colliding worlds at an early age and that became a theme of her academic work. She grew up with a love of horseback riding, Mozart, and classical guitar, and she also grew up in a Mexican Baptist home, which means she started reading and memorizing the Bible at the age of five.

Archbishop Raymond Hunthausen, Inspiration for the School of Theology and Ministry Dies

Hunthausen90x90

The School of Theology and Ministry has lost one of its “spiritual and inspirational architects”: Archbishop Raymond Hunthausen. He died at age 96, having lived an extraordinarily rich and impactful life as a Catholic priest, chemist, college president, bishop, and archbishop. He belonged to a generation that is so far removed from the lives of most students at the School of Theology and Ministry that few are probably aware of his legacy, which became big news in the 1980s throughout the United States and even across the globe. Seattle University will host a two-hour symposium on the life of the archbishop, followed by a memorial service, October 10, 2018. The remembrance gathering will occur on the eve of the opening of the Second Vatican Council on Oct 11, 1962.
