We're excited to introduce to you some of our new students that will be joining us for the 2012-13 school year. Today's featured student is Danny Coleman, who is a new Access student from Edmonds, WA.
My name is Danny Coleman. I am a progressive Christian Quaker. I am about to turn 50 and have been a follower of Jesus since my early 20's, but only became a Quaker about 5 years ago. My interests are theology, history and music. My idea of a good time is reading N.T. Wright or Walter Wink or Richard Horsley or John Woolman while plinking a ukulele. I also have a keen interest in Christian mysticism--from the desert monastics to the Cappadocian fathers to the Catholic mystics to Ignatius of Loyola to George Fox and beyond. I grew up in Denver but now live in Seattle with my wife Carla and dog Yoshi. Our son lives in Germany and is a laser physicist. I love to teach and to write and have a desire to deepen my knowledge of Quakerism, theology in general and scripture. I am particularly interested in how the theological stories we live in shape our view of the world and our attitudes towards and interactions with God and people. I think Friends have a message that is both profound and profoundly relevant for these times.
