Dr. Fea’s Virtual Office Hours – Historical Blogging

April 29, 2013

Many of you undoubtedly already follow Dr. John Fea’s blog at the Messiah College History Department.  His latest “virtual office hours” ask some FAQs about his blog, including the one I really wanted to know about how he manages his time with it.  I found his answer to be quite interesting.  The other questions are intriguing as well.  Give him a listen:

Job Hunt… and Trust

September 18, 2012

CFH member and OK State grad student Mary Sanders sent over this article from the Chronicle.

It highlights a rather tragic story about colleagues competing in the same job market.  This is a sensitive subject for some of us… especially if we end up competing in a similar CCCU job market.

So… hoping to conjure some good discussion here:

How does this change with us being fellow Christians?

What is a “right spirit” in this situation?

How are you, or how have you navigated the job market when it comes to colleagues, friends, and brothers/sisters in Christ?

Getting Connected

June 23, 2011

Well it’s summer. You’ve put the books down (haha!), you’re spending time with family (who?), and you’re contemplating the depths of frisbee golf or lawn darts.

It’s still important to get and stay connected. If your only graduate school connections are those in your department, be sure to take note of some external resources. Check this out:

The one that readers of this blog would most be interested in is probably InterVarsity. However, the rest of the list is intriguing. Enjoy!
