I completed my first degree in Theology, minoring in Philosophy, at the University of Helsinki and since then completed a pastoral degree at the Theological School of Finland - I was ordained in July 2019. During my undergraduate studies I spent six months in Madagascar doing voluntary work as an English teacher and Bible teacher for Operation Mobilization.
I’m interested in exploring the creative possibilities at the intersection of theological aesthetics and the theology of the cross in relation to the (anti)theodicy discourse. I would like to explore the non-explanatory and ethically oriented theological responses to suffering and develop my own creative response that would take into account the ethical charges and epistemic challenges brought against theodicies in general.
My other interests include human existence, poetry, culture (especially postmodernism and its various manifestations), history (especially war history), the present, seemingly (and perhaps actually) absurd beliefs, and institutions.
