Check out our first blog post (excerpted below) from Tessa Crews, our summer intern, who is working with herbal medicine this summer, exploring theological questions of healing, sacred traditions, and community.

News from the Project

Our summer intern blog began posting updates from our interns this week. Tessa Crews, Elizabeth Surratt, and Brit Dunnavant will post throughout the summer about their work experiences, the readings they are discussing with their mentors, and their own theological reflections. #PLTinterns

At the beginning of June, the authors of our forthcoming book, Can I Get a Witness? convened in Charlottesville for SILT 2016. We shared three days of conversation about the theme of witness, the writing of theological biography, and the vibrant and multifaceted figures whose stories the book will share. The 2017 SILT: Can I Get a Witness? meeting will be held in Chicago in June. #PLTevents

We're reading I Have Come a Long Way by project contributor John W. de Gruchy. #LivedTheologyReads

From the intern blog

"We have rituals here. Some inhabitants are likely to smudge sage along the river’s edge, honoring nature’s abundance and praying for divine guidance. Others choreograph masked dances for annual pagan theatre performances. Yet another villager burns sacred cow dung in their backyard agni-hotra fire ritual while the neighborhood church holds a Christian baptism in the local swimming hole. There is a diversity of faith and persuasion, but all is connected to the land."

—Tessa Crews, "It seems I ran away again."
