I am a pastor, former hospital chaplain and high school English teacher…and I once had a temp job where I got to hold Oprah’s dry cleaning in a convention center hallway (o.k., that wasn’t the whole job).  I’m a student of practical theology, which means I’m interested in the complicated relationship between what people actually do and what they actually believe.  What you’ll find here tries to honor complexity and to make space for different perspectives on big questions, especially religious ones.
