I am a native Californian who now calls Chicago home (because it is a great city and I keeps telling myself that it really is not part of the mid-west). I’m wonderfully married to Cyd and have two boys, Soren and Tennyson. I serve as a co-pastor at Life on the Vine, along with David Fitch, my wife, and Ty Grigg. Recently I’ve become affiliate professor of theology at Northern Seminary and I am also a doctoral candidate at Marquette University studying the intersection of theology and society, but specifically how liturgy and politics relate. You can follow me on Twitter or Facebook, and I also help organize the The Church and Postmodern Culture blog.
This blog collects the thoughts I have on the missional church, theology and philosophy, politics and culture. I admit I’m all over the place but hopefully you’ll find some of it interesting and helpful.
Also, we’ve been very blessed to gather many skilled musicians here at Life on the Vine, and so I’ve had the pleasure of working with them to produce some original music, some based off older hymns, and others based all within our community. You’ll find those below via soundcloud.
