My name is Brett Hendrickson, and I’m a PhD student in Religious Studies at Arizona State University. I study the religious aspects of health and healing in the U.S.-Mexico borderlands.

I serve as stated supply of Guadalupe Presbyterian Church, a small Presbyterian congregation in the Phoenix, Arizona, area.

My wife’s name is Alex. We have two kids, Tom and Lily.

UPDATE, MAY 2007:  We have moved to the midwest to a town not far from the mighty Mississippi.  For now, I’m out of the pastor business and am supposed to be working on my dissertation.

    Brett, it was a pleasure to “see” you stop by my blog — have a wonderful Christmas, and I hope you have a tasty chimichanga this week (I used to live in Phoenix, and that’s one item you can’t get here…)

    Hi Brett —
    Thanks to your comments on my blog too. I was conceived in Arizona — that’s my only AZ connection, but I have a fantasy about “returning” to Tombstone – where my parents lived across from the cowboy cemetery, or something like that.

    Keep those studies going — not easy while serving a church. Alex and I are both married to pastors trying to pull this off.

    Well, I hope everyone can come on back to AZ. Look us up if you make it out.

    I think you’re in the right line of work! Religious studies is a whole heckuva lot more than theology but not many people seem to get that. I was raised Presbyterian and left in college when the minister insisted on immaculate conception, physical resurrection and the Trinity. Then I became a UU and then a UU minister — that lasted about a decade. Now I just belong to everything –it saves time.

    I’ll stop by your blog often.

    Prairie Mary
