Welcome, team! So glad you’re here!
Hey, friends! Welcome to a space for questions, wilderness wandering, ex-evangelical, pro-mysticism, and lots of Jesus. I’m writing my way out of all the weird and wonderful in-between spaces that being a queer, charismatic, progressive, Hebrew-Bible-reading, Gospel-preaching, Jesus-loving ex-fundamentalist throws me into. And it’s a delight to have you along with me.
My story is pretty familiar – I grew up in Christian fundamentalist homeschooling subculture, with flags in our churches and Creationism in our textbooks. I’ve spent the last ten years trying to unlearn fundamentalism and find my way home to the Gospel, and I’m grateful for all the ways that God has met me on the way – from Tozer on my bookcases as a kid, to Kierkegaard in my syllabus in undergrad, straight through discovering Avicenna at L’Abri and Julian of Norwich at an Anglican monastery in England. Grace is everywhere, even in the wilderness, and maybe especially in the wilderness.
I’m a New England transplant learning how to put down deep roots in the Deep South, with a BA in Philosophy from the University of New Hampshire and an MDiv from Emory University: Candler School of Theology. I read a lot of mystics, and spend a disproportionate amount of time in the Psalms.
I love to hear from folks, so do drop a note to say hello! And in the meantime, grab a cup of a coffee and pitch a tent with me in the wilderness for awhile. Coffee chats in the desert are the best kind of coffee chats.
