Hi I'm Carolyn. I taught literature to undergrads for 15 years, but resigned my tenured position in a ginormous LEAP WITH FAITH (blogpost). When I am not enjoying time with husband and 4 spirited children under 8, I enjoy reading and writing. My previous (even bigger) "leap to faith" is detailed in my book SURPRISED BY OXFORD . You can download a FREE PDF of Ch.1

Home Going: Intention

My new collection of poetry is out, and I am grateful to those of you who have already supported it in myriad ways. These poems were inspired by my return “home” to London, Ontario, Canada a few years ago, but also by the exploration of what it means to be “home” in our faith, regardless of where we might be in the world. Many poems hail from the distinct seasons we experience here in Southern Ontari...

“Ahhh, teaching literature. A noble calling! For we are all stories.”
Carolyn Weber, Surprised by Oxford

“Dr. Deveaux stopped and looked at me hard. He leaned in and whispered, 'The rest is all bullshit, Miss Drake. It's as simple as that. Your purpose here in life is to discern the real thing from the bullshit, and then to choose the non-bullshit. Think of the opportunity that God has given you to study as the means by which to attain your own personal bullshit detector. Sometimes that will be particularly difficult, because those who proclaim to know the truth, well intentioned or not, are spewing the most bullshit. But you will know when you have been properly ravished. And then you'll see, how the entire world is eyeball deep in it and that we choose it, and that we choose it every day. But the good news is that, although we struggle with it, there is a way out. Yes, there is a very worthy antidote and option to all the bullshit.”
Carolyn Weber, Surprised by Oxford

“What if everything operates by love?' I said to her, 'I mean, what if this God presence . . . is God moving through us and through everything we do? If so, why do we resist it? What if everything horrible that happens, from drive-by shootings to illness, is because we have broken this chain of love, and we don't know how to put everything right again?”
Carolyn Weber, Surprised by Oxford
