I feel a desire, or more realistically, a nagging, to share what I’ve learned on viewing faith and the Bible and theology through a new lens.

This desire has grown out of a need to examine some of the damaging theology of the American Evangelical church in which I was raised. As I've examined long-held beliefs, I've come across new views of God often rooted in ancient tradition and in the teachings of the church fathers that have not only filled in the gaps, but have created a much healthier faith.

I’ve discovered resources, teachings, and theological constructs which will help you in your journey in following Jesus and helping others do the same.  

This process has a name: deconstruction (setting aside long-held beliefs) and reconstruction (forming a new view to replace the old). 

In (re)visiting ancient history and theology, I’ve had fresh insights I wish I'd come across years ago.

My goal is to use this page and the sermons to unpack some of those learnings, provide resources to help you on your journey, and to make space for us to grow together.

Goals
12 of 50 patrons
50 is a large group, but one that can maintain a sense of vulnerability and collaboration. As we grow, this will be a community-first focus, and rolling 50 deep proves there is a community to serve long-term. Also, with 50 people engaged, we will have funds to up our resource quality.
