Thinking and Believing
I am sometimes referred to as a “hyphenated priest”, as in a priest-professor. Because of that dual identity, I often have dual experiences. For example, when I am at the university, I am often perceived as conservative; but when I’m in a parish, I am often perceived as liberal. Despite these differing and often contradictory labels, I think I am just one person with a single identity.
