My interests continue to focus on the practical, moral, and transformational theology of John Wesley. At Boston, I have continued to develop these passions in new and exciting ways by combining Wesley’s theology with Aristotelian, Thomistic, and MacIntyrean understandings of virtue ethics. The fruit of this labor has been a Wesleyan moral theology that attends to ecclesiological practice as the locus of cultivating the theological virtues, thereby transforming Creation. Currently, I foresee my dissertation emerging from the intersection of these fields.
