Pursuing reasonableness, thoughtfulness, & faithfulness. Dabbling in optimism and grace. Seeking the most excellent way.
Husband to Kristin. Father to Maggie, Judah, & Lea.
We moved to Wichita, Kansas in the summer of 2018 with some friends of ours to plant and help pastor The Dwelling Church. I work co-vocationally at the Mental Health Association of South Central Kansas in a program designed to help teenage boys thrive in emotional and social health.
I am blogging because I need to do better. I need to be more reasonable. I need to be more thoughtful. I need to be more faithful. Putting my thoughts down in writing helps me to ensure I am doing all of the above. I am hoping to encourage others to be reasonable, thoughtful, and faithful in their journeys as well, even when we don’t agree.
I’m naturally a skeptic and cynic, but I long to be optimistic and gracious. I’m trying. Some times I try harder than other times.
I should add that the views expressed here are solely mine. I admit that I can be and have been wrong. I welcome dialogue, dissent, and discussion as long as we can do it with mutual respect. We can make each other better.
