We are fighting for Truth in the age of truthlessness, and 2020 has shined a dingy spotlight on our dilemma. It’s a problem that goes deeper than asking ”What is true?” and demands an answer to the question, ”What is truth?”.
A challenge to Christ-followers to reject the religious “either or” mentality in favor of a more constructive (albeit more complex) “both and” philosophy.

Not only is it possible to embrace our race, our faith, and our gender identities at the same time, it’s necessary.
My words here will be about Jesus, and discipleship, and habits, and language, and leadership, and parenting, and culture, and books, and things my grandma says. But mostly, Jesus. In all of his simple splendor and mysterious complexities. He tends to show up in everything I have to write, say and do.
