There are many adjectives I could use in an effort to answer the question of who I am. Naive, idealistic, postmodern, arrogant, sarcastic, Lutheran, student, son, husband, brother, and friend are only but a few of the vast collection of words at my disposal.But rather than use those words without context in an effort to portray myself as I want you to see me I will simply say that my name is Matt Borrasso.
Recently, I graduated from Northern Seminary with an M.A. and am now pursuing my M.Div. from Concordia Seminary in St. Louis. I hope one day to move on to a Ph.D. program focusing on confessional and ecumenical ethics. I want to spend my life interacting with others, creating safe places where people can engage ideas foreign and familiar in an effort to orient both myself and their selves to the other in all of our lives. That’s a really pedantic way of saying that I have a naive and idealistic hope that I can help others to help others and engender an attitude that seeks to care for and love the other first and foremost, no matter who they are or what they believe.
I welcome and encourage any questions, comments, criticisms, and any other thoughts you might have. After all, we are all in this together.
