Teaching & Research
My PhD research was in the interplay between Feminist Theology and Basil of Caesarea’s De Spiritu Sancto (a treatise on the Holy Spirit written around 376 in Capadocia – now Central Turkey). The PhD had an emphasis on the gifts of the Spirit. Hopefully it will be published in due course. At STETS I teach Biblical Studies. I have revived my interest in Hebrew and done some initial research in Isaiah, Romans and Matthew. I am looking into the interrelationship between the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament. I hope to do semantic research into Hebrew terms for ‘justice’ and ‘salvation’.

For leisure I enjoy playing games (like Settlers of Catan), badminton, flying a kite, cycling, walking, singing, watching films eating out and reading.
I was born in the north of Ghana (West Africa) where my parents worked as ministers and ecumenical lay trainers for the Presbyterian Church of Ghana. When I was four we settled in Rijssen a Dutch town near the German border. I studied education in Ede (Netherlands at the Christelijke Hogeschool Ede) and received a B Ed. I studied theology in Utrecht (at the then Katholieke Theologische Universiteit now Tilburg University) and received an MA. In Leiden I did my ordination training for the Remonstrant Church and in Geneva I studied ecumenical studies with the WCC. My PhD is from Manchester University in feminist pneumatology and Basil of Ceasarea. I worked as an ordained Remonstrant minister in the parish of Maastricht. In England I worked as a FE-college chaplain in Myerscough College (Lanchashire) and an advisor for lay ministry in the Bristol diocese. I am married to Keith Thomasson a priest in the Church of England and we have three young children Susannah, Reuben and Johan.
