|..A new mailing list dedicated to
the work of Father Andrew Greeley in his tripartite identity as:
Priest / Sociologist / Story-teller ...
is available as of 11 July, 1996. Listowners are Ingrid Shafer, Professor of Philosophy and Religion at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma (who will do the actual running of the list) and Leonard Swidler, Professor of Catholic Thought and Interreligious Dialogue at Temple University (who has arranged for the location of the list in the Temple computer system).
In this list we want to give Greeley's global audience a chance to share their reading of Greeley's work, connect his stories to their own lives, meet one another, and build on Greeley's fundamental vision as starting point for imaging the Catholic Church for the next millennium--in the words of super sleuth Father Blackie (long before his promotion to bishop), "in communities that support instead of control, that fight envy instead of institutionalizing it, communities in which power is in the service of love" (Virgin and Martyr).
Keep in touch...
Locally, and Globally!

GREELEY@LISTSERV.TEMPLE.EDU is an on-line community for Greeley's parishioners all over the world. Objective, respectful criticism supported by evidence is acceptable.
