I’m the author of Sacred Signposts: Words, Water, and Other Acts of Resistance (2018) from Eerdmans and a contributor, with Kerry Waller Dueholm, to When Kids Ask Hard Questions: Faith-Filled Responses on Tough Topics (2019) from Chalice. I’ve also written extensively on religion, politics, culture, movies, and books for The Christian Century, Aeon, Religion Dispatches, The Atlantic, Pacific Standard, The Washington Monthly, The American Conservative, and a few other places.
Ordained in 2009, I’m a Lutheran pastor currently serving Christ Lutheran Church in Dallas, Texas. I previously served in different capacities in churches in Chicago and its suburbs. I’m a graduate of the University of Chicago and Deep Springs College. My wife and I have three kids and host an occasional cast of foster children.
Thank you for visiting and reading.
