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.
