About Michael Bledsoe
Born in Cincinnati, graduate of Stetson University, I earned the MDiv and PHD from Southern Seminary. My vocation for 36 years has been the pastorate where for 28 years, I pastored Riverside Church in Washington DC. For 20 years, I taught as recurring Adjunct Professor at Howard University School of Divinity in the areas of World Religions, Philosophy of Religion and Church History. Having labored under the weekly deadline for sermons and written lectures for classes, I have on occasion attempted to write fiction (Rooster's Table is my one novel, only available for iPad) and currently I've published a novella, I Dreamed of a Whale or, Andy's Apology Tour, available here on Amazon. Whatever the genre, stories and texts are codices for interpreting the greatest mystery: ourselves. At least that is what Augustine argued. My favorite novel? Annie Dillard's, A Pilgrim at Tinker Creek and John Banville, The Sea. I have supplemented my writing of various texts with travel over the years, most recently sixty days of sabbatical that included Ghent, Belgium and Canterbury, England. Travel is the only activity that parallels and competes with reading as a tonic for the mind and soul. It has, of course, other benefits, including physical exercise. Both reading and travel are antidotes to bigotry and xenophobia. Read the world. Travel the world and in turn, be read and explored.
