In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.
"What can one say about life with a degree in Religious Studies from St. John Fisher College?
Well, it's almost been a year since graduation and I can say that things are definitely different but ever the same. I am now at the Faculty of Theology at the University of St. Michael‟s College (USMC) in Toronto, Ontario. When people ask me what I am doing with my life now, I do sometimes answer using the acronym. Of course, to an American, it is first heard as the branch of the United States military and not a theological institution. But here in Canada, USMC has no other connotation than a member school in the Toronto School of Theology consortium. The TST is a good fit for me. Here I am exposed to many different theological outlooks and denominational worldviews that could have otherwise gone unnoticed in a different setting. Such diversity is refreshing and, at times, challenging. On the whole I view these opportunities as growing/learning experiences."
