Hi. As some of you may know, I am currently doing a PhD at Durham University in Northeast England. These two years I have been getting a loan and a scholarship from Norway but there has been some problems. I have gotten the money in Norwegian currency but since the pound has risen after I got the money, I have lost some. I don't like to do this, but I would be grateful if you wanted to help me with my PhD, financially. I am in a bit of a pickle, as I'm now low about £7,000 for this year, were almost 5,000 of these were due to the rise of the pound. I'm hoping that some of you may want to help, but no pressure, of course.

I do have a gofundme page. See gf.me/u/wichws

The sum is listed in Norwegian currency. I am hoping to not have to take out too much in loans next year.

I am working on the nature of active participation in this PhD, looking at Aquinas, Joseph Ratzinger, and Catherine Pickstock. My basic thesis is that participation must first be understood as participation in God or in Christ, and that this way liturgy must be understood as something given that we might then participate in. See more here: https://katolikken.wordpress.com/phd/

I will be very grateful if some of you would like to chip in.

A little bit for your education. But, the beer is your problem.
