We recently lost one of the most creative and compelling process theologians, Joseph Bracken. There are few theologians I’ve read as often and closely as Father Bracken. On top of being a top-tier scholar, he was kind. He read my entire dissertation and sent encouraging responses, & thoughtful criticisms.

Over lockdown, we had a number of long Zoom sessions from my Edinburgh basement, during which he helped me process my own faith struggles. For Process theologians, each moment of becoming is met with an invitation from God for deeper participation in the divine life. Joe cultivated a habit of saying yes, and I am confident that adventure isn’t over.
