about me

I’m a small-town pastor living under the big Kansas sky.

My wife and I raise veggies, chickens, blackberries, strawberries, apples, and two sons.  We’re committed to living simply and locally.  Most days, we don’t even start our car.

This is where I wax poetic about my backyard.  It’s my doxology project, a blog about praising God in the everyday.

The pictures on The Doxology Project are taken within roughly 10 miles of our house.  Most will be from closer.  This is my little way of practicing the discipline of life in place.  It’s photography as act of noticing.

My book on the rural church: God’s Country: Faith, Hope, and the Future of the Rural Church will be released by Herald Press on September 19, 2017.
