And it is a very nice article. “Schreyer dean set for priesthood” ran in our local paper. Somehow the reporter with the university beat heard about my ordination to the priesthood and asked for an interview. Given my position I felt it prudent to check with the Provost and President and I want to say that they have been fantastic, very supportive and encouraging. Although the journalist picked up on some offhanded sorts comments I made, I think it is a nice article. You could tell, however, that he was not a regular on the religion beat; he did not ask a single question about the current debates going on in the national church.
(I should add that I am not sure where he got the idea that I am “well know his work in biblical studies.” Targum studies, among all 18 of us maybe…. 🙂 )
