Today the fellows discussed the work of Ephraim Radner with Cody Strecker. Cody is a PhD candidate in Theology at Baylor, a Brazos Fellows Tutor, and a frequent guest instructor for the fellows. He also serves as family catechist at Christ Church Waco–although he and his family will be moving on this summer, as he’s taken a position as Visiting Assistant Professor of Theology at Hillsdale College.

Here are links to things we talked about:
- St. Ephraim the Syrian.
- Poet Peter Cole and his collection, Hymns & Qualms: New and Selected Poems and Translations.
- The recent Comment magazine article, “Selling our Birthright for a Quiet Pew,” on the spiritual equality of children.
- N.D. Wilson’s 100 Cupboards series.
