R.R. Reno on keeping your faith in college :

The most important piece of advice I can give: don’t put your spiritual life on hold! During your first semester of college there are many new people to meet, as well as new experiences to have, and fascinating ideas to entertain. That’s as it should be. But it’s easy to get swept up into all this and say, “I don’t have time, but I’ll get back to my faith someday.”

Also today, Aaron Closson on Heidegger, the reluctant theologian :

Given the debate over Heidegger’s philosophical and ethical legacy it may seem excessively generous to suggest that his work holds interest for Christian theologians. Even those defending his intellectual status admit that Heidegger acted despicably in betraying his Jewish students and colleagues during the purge of the German university system by the National Socialists. Why, in view of his personal failings, argue for a theologically relevant Heidegger?
