Thanks for stopping in. Pour yourself a cup o' jo, take a load off your feet, and check out what's here. You are looking at my ramblings about issues of faith, life and culture—they are my own and are not necessarily shared by those with whom I work, live or otherwise engage.

My journey has led my family and me across the country where I have been introduced to a lot of people and a lot of different ways of doing things. One passion, though, runs through all these experiences: building beloved and sustainable community. "Sustainable" community is kind of a strange notion, as communities (people) change constantly, and things are always in motion. So, the latest chapter of my life has led me to the notion of "impermanence"—not an idea that comes naturally in a culture that likes to build monuments to our greatness for future generations to view and admire. But, I'm trying to practice my awareness of impermanence—the idea that nothing is permanent, nothing is forever, and things are always in flux.

Feel free to share your comments and engage in any conversation that may be happening here, but just know that I do reserve the right to delete any spam or anything I deem inappropriate or offensive. I look forward to dialoguing with anyone who cares to dialogue!

Peace and blessings,

SparkHouse Animate

I am excited that the folks at SparkHouse are coming out with a cool new adult curriculum to “spark” new life into our Christian lives with awesome content and some pretty funny and goofy cartoon videos.

I’ve been using SparkHouse’s re:Form youth confirmation curriculum for a few years now, and I love it (it’s actually part of the overall curriculum I use for youth confirmation). The material invites questions and is not “preachy.” In fact, they don’t give a lot of answers, and leave room to wrestle with stuff. They raise some great questions that have sparked some awesome conversation with the youth I’ve taught.

In this new adult/young adult curriculum their also using some voices that I have come to trust and appreciate in the ongoing dialogue about what the Church is becoming, namely my friends Bruce Reyes Chow and Carol Howard Merritt, who also blogs here and co-hosts the God Complex Radio podcast.

There many people I would love to be leading a group with, and Bruce and Carol are one of the top people on that list. I don’t know when it’s coming out, but I hope you check it out, or at least check out the video about it (see above). Check out their other stuff at www.wearesparkhouse.org.
