Dr. Blue was awarded a Lilly Faculty Fellowship for 2008-09 by the Association of Theological Schools for her sabbatical project, Case of Katrina: Reinventing the United Methodist Church in Post-Katrina Louisiana. The project is an outgrowth of her course, The Church’s Response to Katrina, which takes Phillips students to Louisiana to explore churches re-evaluation of their mission in light of devastation to property and the scattering of congregants.

Her book, Attentive to God: Thinking Theologically in Ministry, co-authored with Charles Wood and published by Abingdon in 2008, stems from her interest in connecting theological education with ministerial practice. She teaches History of Christianity and United Methodist Studies courses; other offerings include Women and Religion in America, Issues for Women in Christian Ministry and Christianity in Latin America.
