How to Talk Evangelical is the title of my memoir (currently represented by Rachelle Gardner). It is an attempt to tell the story of my spiritual journey and, along the way, to reclaim and redefine a faith that has been oversimplified, jammed into a specific set of terms and phrases.
This blog is a way to continue to probe the language of spirituality outside of the pages of that memoir.
In a blog, there is space and time to explore terms that I didn’t get to in the book, words that didn’t make sense to delve into with the narrative arc of my story. God knows there are hundreds of them.
But, also, more importantly, a blog provides a way to have a discussion about those terms. I hope this blog can be something of a collaborative project. I believe that no single definition can fully capture the complexities of spiritual truths and realities, and so I hope you will join in telling your own stories and insights alongside mine.
The result, I believe, will be a kind of prism through which the Light may shine.
For a little more, check out my first blog post ever, The How to Talk Evangelical Project.
I plan to blog weekly on Tuesdays and Thursdays. To contribute a posting to this blog, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to hear what you’re thinking!
