The Title: This is not a philosophy blog, at least in the sense that I write about Socrates, Hobbes, Leibniz, or whether the tree in the forest made a sound. I came up with the phrase "philosophy over coffee" years and years ago to describe my love for just hanging out with a warm cup and shooting the bull about religion, pop culture, politics, and whatever else. So when I say "philosophy," I mean in the broadest sense.
The Content: In general, you'll find a lot about my experiences as a local church pastor, as well as exploring new and creative ways to do and be the church in the 21st century. You'll also find significant doses of pop culture, musings on family life, and reflections on where my spiritual journey has been or is going.
This is not my "professional blog" in conjunction with my work as a pastor. This is a hobby, or at best an independent ministry (because pastors are always "on" in some sense). I strive for an honesty here that you probably won't find on The Official Blog of Pastor So-and-So of Such-and-Such Church, and that's the way I like it.
As you read, try to imagine the two of us hanging out and sipping a cup of joe. That's a big part of what I strive for here. Thanks for reading.
