Life is vulnerable and the inhumanity of our world has to be resisted through the creation of meaning and beauty.

How do we make meaning? What myths and stories are shaping our perspective? What reminds us to be awesome? How do we go about decreasing world suck?

These are the sorts of questions I'm interested in asking. I want to talk about the narratives that give purpose to existence in an uninhibited way where I can chase rabbits not just through Ezekiel, and Amos, and Luke, and Paul, but also through Butler, and Rowling, and LeGuin, and Stan Lee.

I want to make videos which provoke conversations about the stuff that matters without respect for doctrinal boundaries or religious allegiance. Have you noticed that conversations about religion online often involve people living into the worst caricatures created by people they disagree with? Let's find ways to talk about life, and death, and pain, and joy together.

I'd like to make these videos as high quality as possible and also be able to pay my bills, ideally without having to chase after advertising revenue.

So I'm asking you to pledge a little money to help me make things you like. In the process, you'll get to help shape the conversation into something better than it could have been without you.

Your heart will be strangely warmed. You get the knowledge that you're helping me make a thing, and you get access to any of the things I make which I share exclusively with patrons. From time to time I will ask your opinion about which thing I should make next.

Are you interested in a study group aiming to equip and inspire people to resist the inhumanity of our world? Want some ideas and encouragement for making beauty and meaning out of life? This is the level I encourage people to pledge at if they take part in the live stream study group.

You're my angel. I will work with you to come up with a specific video you want to see. Is there a particularly challenging passage of scripture you want interpreted? A religious text from another tradition you want me to examine? A geeky movie or book you want me to talk about? Let's chat.
What?!?!

I don't even know why you love me so much, but wow. I will be in touch and together we'll come up with a completely awesome and utterly unique way for me to express my gratitude to you.

I have several video series concepts that are simply too expensive to produce on my own. They would require time to fly to locations and hire some help and so forth. If I can get to this level of funding then I can afford to take the time necessary to start to create some of these more complex video projects. I can't tell you how excited that would make me.
