I love my fellow Christians. I love the church. But I think we mess things up—a lot. It’s okay, we love and serve a G-d of grace and forgiveness. And guess what? That includes everyone!
I believe that too often, our faith gets cluttered with tired doctrine, exclusionary systems, and a failure to see each person as being made in the image of God. I am especially passionate about eliminating the ways in which we cut down women and LGBTQ people. I hope that by sharing some of my own thoughts and my own journey that others will begin to think about how we can have a more generous, inclusive Christianity.
I use this space to put down my thoughts about faith, theology, doctrine, the church, and how we, as Christians, live what we believe. I also sometimes throw in some random things about life, my kids, and the art of writing.
I’ll admit it, I’m a sucker for a good love story. Not just any love story, though–I like a good dose of humor, a cast of quirky characters, and a side of Injustice Smackdown. I don’t mind smut, but it needs to be well-placed and important to the story. And don’t even get me started on the abundance of Romance Tropes. So instead of complaining that I can’t find nearly enough of the right kind of tales, I decided I should just write a few of my own.
