“My Art of Ministry experiences gave me a community that called me their own. That was far more than I could have asked for in an internship, but it was exactly what I needed,” reflects alumnus John Carroll (MDiv '13).

#WakeDiv alumnus and founder of the @theologynerd podcast @trippfuller hosts a live pod-party at #WFU with faculty members Bill Leonard and Jill Crainshaw. Tweetable quote of the night so far from Leonard: “You can be right about the Scripture and wrong about the gospel." Podcast available online soon!
“Advent invites us to pause in the moment of unfulfillment. Advent invites us to feel the gravity and burden of living in the here and not-yet. Advent waiting forces us to lean into the uncertain time before the heavens open up and the angels sing. Advent waiting occurs during the long nights under the oppressive Empires of our world. Yet advent calls us to ‘watch and wait’ for the One who will restore and make all things new.” - Third-year #WakeDiv Student, Laurie Kenyon Woods
A #WakeDiv alumna recently led a course on spiritual transformative theatre. "Our experiences & stories matter, " one student reflects. "We really need to examine how we are portraying that not only to others, but also to ourselves." Read & watch more at 🔗 in profile.

About Homebrewed Christianity: Since March 13, 2008, Homebrewed Christianity Podcast has been bringing you the best nerdy audiological ingredients so you can brew your own faith.  You will find conversations between friends, theologians, philosophers, and scholars of all stripes.  What started as a reason for Tripp Fuller (MDiv '07) to interview the authors of his favorite books has turned into a community of podcasts, bloggers, & Deacons (what we call our regular listeners) invested in expanding and deepening the conversation around faith and theology.  We hope you listen, question, think, and then share the Brew!
#WakeDiv's Jill Crainshaw: "We are tired of waiting. What we really want is for God to rip open the veil and let God’s cosmic light bear down on every place where injustice and its power brokers try to hide. We yearn for God—to boil, quake, tremble. Hopeful expectation and starry-eyed wakefulness don’t do it for us anymore. Not when justice has been delayed and denied. When streets are chaotic with violence. When hearts are shattered by endless, needless, pointless loss."

"I think this is the kind of community Wake Divinity seeks to be and often times is," remarks #WakeDiv student Michael Hood. "It is not only learning how to do those things but making space for those things to happen." Read more about our Harvey relief effort, "Building Bridges with Britches," and our partnership with Laura Mayo, a 2003 alumna, using the LINK in our profile.
Last month, WakeDiv’s Office of Spiritual Life collaborated with Mosaic, a student organization, to sponsor a “Soul Collage” workshop. Using the arts of collage, journaling, and spiritual direction, #WakeDiv students created cards to inspire personal growth in themselves and others.

Earlier this year #WakeDiv took a pilgrimage to the Isle of Iona to discover the sacredness of place & contemplative spirituality. One student reflects, "I left the isle wanting to stay, to continue to experience this mysterious peace & calm." Read more via LINK in our profile.

Every year, third-year #WakeDiv students are invited to preach in our Community Worship services. It is an honor to hear a prophetic word from these students who have spent three years studying and wrestling with God’s call to justice, reconciliation, and compassion.
