Where Faith and Life Meet


I explore the intersections of faith and life,—those places along the journey where we experience the push and pull of the meaning we yearn for, the demands we face, and the opportunities we have. I believe that it’s possible for us to live wisely, joyfully, and effectively as we navigate the contrast between our world as it is and as it could be and the creative tension between who we are and who we’re becoming.

I trust that Love is the source, center, and goal of life: we’re here to learn that we—all of us—are beloved children of God. Genuine justice, tender mercy, and authentic peace flow from embodying and enacting that awareness.

In my writing and speaking, I offer what I’m learning on my own journey, and, in my work as a companion-guide, I walk alongside people and groups as they continue to learn from theirs.

In my writing, speaking and consulting, I explore the dynamics of a flourishing life, think about hard ethical issues, and reflect on how to align our practices with our values.
