Delightfully eclectic day at the and annual postgraduate research conference. Heard students deliver papers on eschatology in Hebrews, intertextuality in Luke, the ethics of sex robots, and Bonaventure’s epistemology. Now, the pub.

Dunno. You set the bar pretty high on that one.

Real blow for the Conservative party today, losing Dominic Raab from the shortlist and cutting their list of white, male, privately-educated Oxford graduates down to just four.

Fair enough. After all, no harm ever befell the church from denying that pesky theological detail which is the full deity of Christ. Enjoy your chocolate.

Trying to get hold of a couple of articles from Journal for the Study of Paul and His Letters, vol. 7 no. 1-2 (2017), but I don’t have institutional access. Can anyone hook me up? (without infringing copyright, of course)

Thanks, Chris. Have you had an experience trying to do this efficiently with the iOS version of Scrivener? I work almost exclusively on my iPad Pro, and would love a simple workflow for citations. (Alas Zotero doesn’t have an iOS version, but I’ve got the Endnote app).

Alas I have a prior commitment with the British Sign Language translation project. I might be able to make an appearance in the afternoon though if I’m done in time. Can you send me a schedule?

I’m no physicist, but I’d guess they would have an issue with HUP being used on human social systems. Don’t quote me though - I’m trying to drag this from the dusty corners of my mind where my 15-year-old missiology/cultural anthropology training is stored...😀

I’ve seen this commonly described as an anthropology version of Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle, which I’m pretty sure would be a misuse. Quick bit of research turned up the ‘Hawthorne effect’ - is that what you need?

Ok. Would want to try and articulate that kind of ‘preparedness’ without it collapsing into anthropology, or some kind of (Bultmannian?) existential ‘moment of decision’. Can the analogy work cosmologically?

No, today I’m re-reading Martyn on the Abrahamic covenant in Gal 3-4 for a writing project. But I taught my GMark class last night (with a heavy Joel Marcus influence) and was again struck by how Malachi puts these themes together.

Was hoping you’d solve that one for me, Phil. 😉
