“The Naked Theologian” is ordinarily clothed. Online, I’m known as TNT. In the nondigital world, I’m known as Myriam Renaud. I’m an ordained Unitarian Universalist minister currently working on a doctorate in Constructive Theology. I try to post regularly, but I sometimes have to put the blogging aside to focus on my ten million other commitments.
Some of my recent activities: I am the Managing Editor of Sightings, an online twice-weekly publication about religion in current events sponsored by the University of Chicago Divinity School’s Martin Marty Center. I regularly contribute theology columns to the UU World magazine. I have been featured on Chicago’s Progressive radio station WCPT, taught “Liberal Theology” at Meadville Lombard Theological School, “World Religions” at Morton College, and “Theology for Unitarian Universalists” online through the UU Church of the Larger Fellowship. I serve on the Advisory Board of the Unitarian Universalist Ministry at the Great Lakes Naval Recruit Training Center. I am a Community Minister affiliated with the DuPage Unitarian Universalist Church, and serve on the Unitarian Universalist Association’s Commission on Appraisal.
My areas of scholarly interest: philosophical theology, religious ethics, history of Christian thought, history of Jewish thought, the history of Islamic thought.
Although I rarely reply to comments, I much appreciate your reading your reactions. I’ve sometimes changed my mind because of them and have often reflected further on my views. I monitor other blogs that respond to my postings. Again, fellow bloggers have caused me to think again.
So thanks for reading my posts, thanks for your comments, and thanks for engaging my work in your blogs!
