Yikes, thank you! This is a solid level of support. In exchange for your generosity, you'll receive the forgiveness of all sin.

(Okay, that's already been granted. But it's nice to have a reminder, right?!)

Wowza, this is huge! In return for your generosity, on you're deathbed, you'll receive total consciousness. Which is nice. (Forgive me, I had to throw in a Caddyshack joke somewhere.)

Because of you, I can commit even more to this work and give it out for free to those who can't afford to be a patron. Haooogah!

Yep, I'm blown away. You've rocked my world with your generosity and I'm rendered speechless. Thank you.



About Jonas Ellison

In 2015, I started blogging daily about faith, work, creativity, and life. What started as a personal creative outlet turned into the #1 single-author spirituality publication on Medium with over 70,000 readers - way more than I can fit into my living room. Eventually, my work there has blossomed into my life’s purpose and the ensuing call towards ministry in the Lutheran church. 

And so, here I am, at a precipice. After 2000+ blog posts and as a midlife seminarian, I want to go deeper into this work to better serve you long into the future. Patreon gives you a way to support my work at whatever level you can to keep my butt in the chair doing what I do best. As a freelance creator, your support allows me to concentrate on creating lots more content without having to worry about paying my bills.

You can find the bulk of my work at my website. You can also subscribe via email for free so you don't have to go scrolling through the internet to find things.

If you find any joy and value in what I do, please consider becoming a Patron. By supporting me here, you're supporting everything I do there and elsewhere. 

Thanks so much, in advance. By becoming a patron, instead of money going to ad tech companies who want to monetize your attention spans, this gives you a direct connection to me, my livelihood, and my craft. Though it's a privilege to do the work I do, it's also a time and money-intensive endeavor to be an indy creator such as myself (no church body is funding this work). Your support really (really!) matters.

As Ever,
