Minor - Historical Theology
Sarah is a doctoral student in systematic theology. Growing up in a military family, she lived in many different places across the U.S., from Alaska to Florida, settling in Boston in 2013. Following the completion of her M.T.S., Sarah spent a year working as the Pastoral Assistant at St. George Orthodox Church of Boston in West Roxbury, MA. Sarah’s research has focused on a number of topics at the intersection of philosophy and theology, with a particular emphasis on the ways in which retrieving mystical theology through a phenomenological method might contribute to an Eastern Orthodox discourse on theological anthropology, doctrine of God, prayer, and embodiment in the contemporary context. She is particularly focused on the work of Fr. Sergius Bulgakov and the 20th c. Russian-Paris school of Orthodox theological thought, as well as the reception of mystical theology (Patristic and Medieval) in theological conversations concerned with intersectionality (sexuality, gender, and race). She currently lives in Roslindale, MA with her husband, John Thomas, M.T.S, M.S.W., LCSW, and their dog, Mr. Tumnus.
