Way Points on a Journey | William Finnin

Add To Cart

Writing comes hard for me. Always has. During the final few years of my chaplaincy at Southern Methodist University that changed. Providence, in the form of a transforming mode of Grace, released energies theretofore only imagined. The nascent skills of paragraph framing awakened in grounding experiences at Centenary College in Dr. Wilfred Guerin’s 7:50 a.m. freshman English classes, coupled with a loving muse’s gift of “free writing,” opened a small portal of my soul that has yet fully to close. Writing became a daily dance that by grace continues today.

The essays that follow reflect four decades of professional service in the ever-changing settings of collegiate life as university minister, community organizer, pastoral counselor and faculty colleague.

For whatever value these essays, articles, and reflections may bear for a reader, know that each evolved from real-time human situations. Where appropriate I have noted those specific times and settings and ethical questions I considered worth exploring.
