She’s ABD – woo hoo!

My wife’s PhD dissertation proposal was approved this week.  She is officially ABD – All But Dissertation.  The topic?  Something about the recovery and use of tradition in adult faith formation.  She’s been researching ELCA congregations around the country that use the ancient catechumenate as a process to welcome and baptize new converts, and also as an Affirmation of Baptism process for new members joining a congregation.

Congratulations Jess.  You rock.  Tali and I are so proud of you!  Now all you need to do is turn that 8-page proposal into a 250-300 page book.  Just add water?

  1. Sorry, when I reread your post, I realized I misunderstood what you were saying. You can delete my comments. I thought you were meaning that the work was written, but just had to be defended.

  2. Awesome!! Your friends in CA congratulate you !!
    This ELCA/PCUSA congregation is trying to figure out a process for new members/converts. Maybe the ancient way is the key!
    By the way, the luther videos on the Augsburg website are hilarious!!
