I know this world needs another twenty-something-year-old writing a blog just about as badly as 2020 needs another crisis. Aren’t there enough already?

Yet I’ve still decided to start my own blog/newsletter.

Let me explain why.

Since I graduated college just over a year ago, I’ve been forced to rethink a lot of questions I assumed I already had answers to. Questions like: How does being a Christian and an American relate to one another? What does it mean to truly love my neighbor? What does it look like for the Church to be the Church?

To be honest, it’s been a pretty disorienting and discouraging process. To be even more honest, I’m still disoriented and discouraged because in many ways I still feel so far from finding the answers. But even now, I know that God is bigger than my doubts. He can handle my confusion. So, as opposed to ignoring all of my questions, I want to press in on them and that’s exactly what I’m going to do in this blog. It’s going to hopefully be a process of discovery in which, post by post, you and I come closer to understanding how God expects us to live in this time and place.

My first two posts will focus on the two truths I will use as guides in this journey. The first is that God is always good. If He isn’t, then everything falls apart. The second truth is that as Christians, we would do well to primarily focus on knowing God and being faithfully present. I’ll explain these ideas and this language in the next few weeks. Then after that, the posts will be a combination of discussing scripture, books, people, movies, and ideas that provide wisdom and direction.

I don’t have all of the answers. And we won’t end up will all the answers. But even so, I know there has to be a better way forward and I pray God uses this to lead us towards it.

I’d love for you to join me in this conversation by subscribing so that together we can learn more of what it looks like to live a life that is faithfully present.
