A Letter To A Dying Church

Dear Church- Let me start off this letter by expressing my deep love and appreciation for you. I have been an active participant in the community of faith for about 10 years now, and I have been profoundly blessed, cared for, loved, and inspired to be a better human being through you. I have also seen — and even participated in — some of your ugliest and most unfaithful moments in recent history. But through all of these experiences, nothing but utter appreciation and love remains for you. I be … [Read more...]

Culture Wars & Christ (An Excerpt from “Nomad”)

The following is a small, unedited excerpt from my upcoming book, Nomad: Not-So-Religious Thoughts on Faith, Doubt, and the Journey In Between.  During the summer of my freshman year in college, I went on a choir tour to Greece and Cyprus. During our tour of Athens, after climbing up the long, rugged staircase that leads to the Acropolis, we took a moment to stop and look out over the ancient city. The view was breathtaking. As we began to wander around the ancient temple, our tour guide noted t … [Read more...]

Equality Is A Human Issue (& A Christian One)

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


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)

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. All of our desires, beliefs, and convictions begin to seem a lot less resolute, and we begin to feel like the ground beneath us is beginning to crumble. We try to grasp on to something to give us that familiar sense of security, but it all seems to fall through our hands like grains of sand. Waves of … [Read more...]
