My wife and I moved to my rural hometown from Seattle in May 2009. There have been some very good parts to our move but many challenges, and for a long time I felt unable to reflect and so have neglected this blog. I think I'm ready to start writing again.

My family and my faith are very important to me. I grew up Lutheran, joined the Episcopal church just out of college, and have quite intense and long lasting crushes on the Catholic and Orthodox churches. I am learning Koine Greek, have served in various paid and unpaid ministry roles, and am discerning a call to the diaconate. Before my marriage, both my wife and I considered joining religious communities, and I am still very interested in monasticism.

Outside of church and family, I play many roles at my family's newspaper business and dream up far too many schemes and projects.
