THIRST [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2013
THIRST Another morning and I wake with thirst for the goodness I do not have. I walk out to the pond and all the way Cod has given us such beautiful lessons. Oh Lord, I was never a quick scholar but sulked and hunched over my books past the hour and the bell; grant me, in your mercy, a little more time. Love for the earth and love for you are having such a long conversation in my heart. Who knows what will finally happen or where I will be sent, yet already I have given a great many things away, expecting to be told to pack nothing, except the prayers which, with this thirst, I am slowly learning. - Mary Oliver
Theology [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2013
Theology Amanda Osheim Serving the Conversation When I try to capture my sense of the theological vocation, I am drawn to think about whom the theologian serves through the analogy of a what-. "Love for the earth and love for you are having such a long conversation in my heart." I envision the theologian serving the dialogue between God and the world. The conversation is personal, and flows from my experience of God's continual presence in my life. God invites and sends, cajoles and confronts, assuages and empowers me. I am no ideal conversation partner, "never a quick scholar," all too easily distracted and caught up in maelstroms of my own making. I've often thought the theological vocation was God's clever way of keeping my attention. Yet there are moments when I listen and learn how to receive and respond, when "I wake with a thirst for the goodness I do not have." Although this conversation is dialogical it is not narrow. It comes to me through the mediation of both the Church ...
Flowering in the BURREN [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2013
Flowering in the BURREN Colleen M. Griffith There is a well-known and beautiful spot in County Clare, Ireland, known as the Burren. Occupying an area of some 135 square miles, it is a bleak and stony place. The exposed limestone of the Burren stretches for miles with no visible topsoil, presenting a flat but jagged surface. In the Burren, rainwater penetrates lines of weakness in the limestone, and gradually vertical cracks, known as grikes, form in the rocks. Ironically these cracks in the rocks give rise to some rare and amazing wildflowers. A variety of unusual alpine and Mediterranean plants are apparent, growing from the spaces between the rocks. The Burren in County Clare proved to be a big surprise to archeologists, botanists, and ecologists. I suspect that our present ecclesial time will prove a surprise as well. There is, after all, much that is flourishing in our "grikes," the cracks in the rocks of a bleak-looking ecclesial landscape. Our unmistakable sign of rich floweri...

FROM THE C21 CENTER DIRECTOR [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2014
FROM THE C21 CENTER DIRECTOR Dear Friend: It can be argued that there is no Christianity without relationships. As Catholic Christians, we are called to a profound tri-union with our true selves, with others, and with God. Time and time again, we learn how God is revealed to us through our loved ones. C2l presents Intimacy and Relationships in Catholic Life through lived experience sexual relationships, family relationships, and intimacy with God. Personal narrative is certainly the most ancient form of handing on the faith, particularly through stories of intentional wresting with significant life issues. It seems that we become more aware of God’s grace as we authentically share our selves in a loving, mature, and vulnerable way with others. We are grateful for the thoughtful guidance of guest editors Lisa Cahill and Kerry Cronin who bring a wealth of expertise not only with respect to moral theology but also years of experience working with young people. Please share this magazin...

INTIMACY IT’S COMPLICATED [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2014
INTIMACY IT’S COMPLICATED Kerry Cronin How I found myself talking with young adults about hookup culture, dating, and relationships is still a bit mysterious to me, but one thing I know for sure is that about 10 years ago I started to sense a genuine loneliness among the otherwise bright, involved, connected, and accomplished students at my university. When I asked about their lives —not just about their academic lives, but about their personal, moral, and spiritual lives—what troubled and saddened me more than whether or not they were having sex (though that certainly concerns me, no doubt), is how little sex and sexual intimacy even mattered to them. Still today, not only do many of them think that sex is “no big deal,” they usually display little hope that it will ever amount to all that much. They are deeply ambivalent about sex having any significant meaning, and in the context of their mostly ironic culture, they are wary of being duped by grand claims about intimacy, sexual o...
SEX AND THE SINGLE STUDENT An interview with Donna Freitas [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2014
SEX AND THE SINGLE STUDENT An interview with Donna Freitas How would you characterize "hookup culture" for our readers? Most people (and studies) define hooking up as (1) engaging in sexual activity in a casual context, and (2) that the range of sexual activity is often described as anything from kissing to oral sex and/or different types of intercourse. (Also, alcohol is typically part of the equation.) While this description is accurate, it leaves out what truly distinguishes a hookup: the shared goal between partners of erasing, at least shutting out emotional (and, for some, spiritual) content from the experience. Theoretically, a hookup should be purely physical. Aspiring to pure physicality for the encounter allows partners to believe casual sexual intimacy (no strings attached) is feasible. This distinguishing factor cuts across gender and sexual orientation. So, it’s possible to see hookup culture as a kind of training ground where, at least on a college campus, students (to...
