Confessions of a Post-Doc Pastor

It has been over two years since I defended my dissertation. Much has happened since that day. I am five months into a new call, which I love. Yet, I have a confession to make. I miss being in school.

Sometimes, when I get a little stressed, or over-peopled (I am an introvert, remember), I dig into my website hobby/addiction and noodle around. This morning I went back and looked at the Deep in the Burbs website and noticed that all the posts read from newest to oldest, like most blogs do. The purpose of this site is to be a digital artifact that tracks the process of writing a dissertation. So, I wondered if there was a way to reverse the order of the posts so that the reader could read from beginning to end through the progress of the project.

One Google search later, and, eureka! Someone wrote a plugin that does just that. Now, hold on to your seats, because I know you’ve been waiting for this moment for years…you can read Deep in the Burbs from beginning to end right here.

Whew! Now you can sleep at night.

Seriously, this project was and is a huge part of my life and I hope some might find this to be a helpful tweak to the site.

    Why don,t you tell the Bishop that you want to return to Grace as the Head Pastor?

    thanks for doing this! I was thinking of you again as I visited this site (, and wondered about whether or not your dissertation might be a good example for them…
