What I Blog About (and Some Examples)
I’m interested in leadership, politics, productivity, the Bible, and the intersection of faith and culture…. Basically, I’m just interested in lots of stuff, and I write about whatever strikes me on any particular week.
Sometimes I write posts like this about personal development and productivity:
- One Word That Will Change Your Life
- My Low Tech Secret to Getting Up Early Every Day
- My Own Blood Never Looked So Good
- My One Word for 2014
Sometimes I write about faith, the Bible, theology:
- Did the Resurrection Actually Happen?
- 3 Don’ts When Reading Genesis
- Did the Red Sea Event Really Happen?
Sometimes I write about culture and faith and the intersection between the two:
- What The Experts Don’t Want You to Know
- In Which I Compare Myself to Barack Obama
- The Cleanest Toilet Seat You’ll Ever Sit On
- The Murderous, Hilarious Human
Sometimes I write about books and movies and music:
Sometimes I write about current events and politics:

I was born in Virginia. When I was in first grade, my parents moved as missionaries to Sierra Leone, West Africa, where my dad taught in a Bible college for African pastors, and my mom worked in a maternity clinic.
We moved back to Virginia, where I attended middle and high school. I went to college at Columbia University in New York City. After college, I worked for five years as a youth director at a Methodist church in Richmond, VA. In 2007, my wife and I moved to Dallas so I could attend seminary in Dallas. I received my Masters of Divinity degree from SMU in May 2011. While in seminary, I worked part-time as associate pastor at Christ’s Foundry, a small Spanish-language mission congregation in Dallas. I am married to Elaine, and we have a little son named Jack.
Since 2010, I have been the pastor for Munger Place Church, the East Dallas campus of Highland Park United Methodist Church in Dallas, TX.
Munger is an eclectic congregation with an engaging “Come and See” spirit and a deep appreciation for its neighborhood. For decades the historic Munger Place building housed a struggling congregation, but the new congregation, as a second campus of Highland Park UMC, has experienced remarkable growth and blessing.
My sermons are posted weekly here.
