Gabriel j. catanus
Filipino American Theologian
Since launching this site several years ago, I've been overwhelmed by the responses to my initial blog posts-- "The Gospel According to Manny Pacquiao," "Letting Black Lives Matter to the 'Blacks of Asia'," and "Finding Our Place," among others. Since then, some of my work has been published in The Other Journal, Emerging US, and Inheritance Magazine. I've been honored to speak and write as a Filipino American pastor and theologian in countless churches, at various denominational and ministry leadership conferences, and on more college campuses than I can now remember. Last year at the American Academy of Religion conference, it was my privilege to present a paper on Filipino American Theology, an excerpt of my forthcoming dissertation on the same topic. Salamat gid! to all who love and serve our people in the diaspora. We stand on your shoulders and are carried by your prayers.
