A Correction: Evangelical Churches Are Losing Millennials, Not “Megachurches”

Unknown

Yesterday, a piece went live on Huffington Post about my work with Evangelicals for Marriage Equality. In that piece, I made a statement about the decline of evangelical influence in America. However, the statement I made was originally in the context of a 30 minute conversation with the reporter about how the evangelical stance on issues like Marriage Equality are causing many millennials to leave the church, and I wanted to offer a correction to the printed quote. In the HuffPost piece, I … [Read more...]

The Leap (A Reflection)

Unknown-1

There comes a point for many of us when everything seems to go from a sharp black and white to a dozen shades of grey. All of the things we once were so sure about in life now become up for grabs.

Though well intentioned, I think Jonathan fundamentally misunderstood why we referenced the rejections of our ad from these magazines.We affirm the right of any and all publications to be able to decide whom they allow to advertise within their … [Read more...]

On this most solemn of morning for Americans, there are always a wide range of emotions. Can you believe that it has been 13 years since that fateful September morning when our nation was attacked? I was in fourth grade. I remember the day so vividly in my mind. Today, I sit in my office in Washington D.C. looking out over the busy streets.
