My name is Owen Weddle, and I am presently a student in the Logos Institute at the University of St. Andrews working on a Master of Letters in Analytic and Exegetical Theology. Before moving to Scotland, I served as a United Methodist pastor in the Mississippi Annual Conference. I have a BS in psychology from Mississippi State University and a Masters of Divinity from Asbury Theological Seminary.One overarching passion of mine is trying to understand the counters of Christian faith and human experience and to relate the two without sacrificing the particularity of Christ
One overarching passion of mine is trying to understand the contours of Christian faith and human experience and to relate the two together without sacrificing the particularity of Christ nor denying the broad range of human psychology. In my free time, I am a lover of YouTube videos, watching college sports (ask me about Mississippi State and our cowbells), taking long walks to take in the scenery, and reading on a wide array of topics.
If you ever meet me, my Southern accent will come out and if you are with two or more people, I will almost assuredly refer to all of you as “y’all.” (I will even translate the plural ‘you’ in other languages as ‘y’all’, so y’all get ready!)
This blog offers a reason for me to write. Much this is written here will be of various levels of polish, comprehensibility, and validity. This blog is instead more of a chance to put ideas to paper…. errr… the screen than it is me stating anything final and authoritative for widespread consumption. While I welcome discussions, take what is said here of whatever value it truly has.
