I have this intense desire to carry on a conversation about faith, culture, and education, those themes that have shaped my deepest curiosity throughout my life. I trust these things matter to you as well.


One of the guiding assumptions in this blog is that ideas matter. I believe leaders must lead with ideas. Organizations and cities and countries are shaped by ideas. The world is changed through ideas.


But listen to this: For me the most important ideas are animated by the vision for human flourishing we find in the gospel of Jesus Christ. This is a story of what is true and good and beautiful. I affirm that story, even in our postmodern moment when all overarching stories are called into question. How might we better embrace the Christian story, winsomely and thoughtfully, in our time, so that we might contribute, in whatever small way, to a better world for all of God’s children? That’s the question that drives me.


These are the things I would like to explore in the days and months ahead. I would love to hear what you think along the way.
