  1. The graduate with a Theology degree says “I know the answers to all these questions.”

  2. The Arts graduate then asks, ‘That may be what you think you want, but what does that really mean… to you, to me, to the world around us all? And by wanting it are you not, in fact, merely surpressing the desire to give it up and yearn for something else, something new, like curly fries?’

  3. … and thus earns his/her fifth gold star on their name badge, and attains employee of the month. Woo hoo!

  4. but seriously, after receiving my M.Div i went to work at a coffee shop. I would like to spin it off as being missional, but I also wanted my family to eat.

  5. Moving theology away from reductive sensibilities to more integrative and synthetic appproaches is welcome. It’s happening in practice. Formal theology seems to follow that. My work explores social applications of complexity theory, though not with a theological bent.

  6. Yeah what they said. **snigger** theological BENT **snigger**

  7. What does the average theology student weigh? Cola Cubes

  8. Whereas the arts grad just weighs coke.

  9. Classical theologians ask: “Is it true?”
    Liberation theologians ask: “Who does it oppress?”
    Postmodern theologians ask: “Can we know it at all?”
    Process theologians ask: “Is it actualized?”
    Feminist theologians ask: “How can we stick it to the man?”

  10. i regularly refer to my theology degree as my “would you like fries with that?” degree. I remember being asked to apply for a masters in philosophy post-completing my theology degree and I laughed… if the only job i could get then was in a servo i wonder where i’d be with a masters in philosophy…

  11. Assembling the burgers, I’d say. MUCH more thought needed in that 😉
