I am James. I have an M.Div from Regent College and a job at a hardware store. This is not what I feel I should be doing with my life, but this has been God’s provision for me. Ultimately I want to pastor a church, but helping people with their plumbing is a bit like ministry. I am unsure what the future holds but I’m trying to press into what God has for me.
I have a lovely wife and three beautiful children to spend my time with. They are a blessing from God and I get to live with them. This is made easier through copious amounts of coffee. I am a runner, reader and a general nuisance in a world full of serious trouble.
On this blog I share my prayers, struggles and reflections. I offer friendly critiques of Christian language and practice and review a variety of books which are personally edifying or can enrich your ministry. I try to read generously (naming the good where I find it) but will give you my honest opinion on the resources I review.
I welcome all comments provided there are respectful. By all means feel free to disagree sharply, but don’t let discussion devolve into name calling and consigning your sparring partners to eternal torment (which is what usually happens with internet debates). Anyway, hope you enjoy what you read here. Thanks for stopping by!
