I can’t tell if I write about theology or if this has suddenly become a travel blog, but let me fill you in on my last weekend in Scotland. My wife and I (along with John and Logan from this blog) made our way up to Scotland for a few days to catch up and […]

There is a peculiar myth that is cherished by Americans. Dating back prior to the founding of the country, this myth has engrained itself into the very ethos of society.

My wife and I moved to the UK about a month ago and it is going brilliantly. I started a PhD program at Durham and will be here for the next few years. Although my wife and I have been out of the country before, we have never moved to another county. It is quite […]

My heart is so burdened by […]

I got back and was shocked to hear about everything that had happened in a week. What was even more shocking (sort of) was how much discord there was between Christians.

There will be so many practical benefits to our marriage: Cutting commute time in half, […]
