Welcome!

This is a blog about faith, doubt, and the tough questions in-between.  I write about the questions that keep me up at night.  These include (but are not limited to):

  • Should modern science change the way we think about God?
  • Does God exist?
  • Why does God sometimes feel distant?
  • Does God act in the world?  (And if so, how?)

I’m not looking for superficial answers, nor am I simply trying to validate whatever beliefs I happened to grow up with.  Instead, I try to face my questions head-on in search of what I can honestly believe with my whole heart, soul, and mind.

Smarter people than I have already written about these questions in great detail, so I spend a lot of time doing research.  Unfortunately, many of the most interesting responses to my questions are encoded in the dense, complicated lingo of academic theology and philosophy.  I use this blog to translate (as best I can) their interesting ideas into a more readable, engaging language.

From October 2016 to October 2017, I am working on what I call a “God Project.”  For more on what, exactly, this is, check out this post.  Your feedback is always appreciated, so please share your own thoughts and experiences in the comments sections.
