The goal of The Faith-ing Project is to enrich your spiritual life. Our hope is that this might be a gymnasium for the soul; a library for the spirit; and a toy store for the psyche.
I recently collaborated with the wonderful Auden Campbell to create a poem and video acccompanied by music. You can find it here.

These last months have been both strange and fruitful for me. I find myself exploring and considering the spiritual world from angles I’d never even considered. And when I think about a rather cruel boy scout ritual called ‘Snipe Hunting’ I see that this is a unique lens to explore the journey as a whole and these latest changes in particular. For now, Snipe Hunting is a podcast. I suspect it will become my next book.
You can listen to ‘Snipe Hunting’ here.
You can access a growing catalog of new audio meditations that have been lushly produced and musically accompanied here.
My latest book release is ‘Words Made Flesh.’
There is this disconnect. We know that The Bible is important, but it sometimes can feel so distant from us. It does not need to be this way.
Four spiritual practices can help to bring these words to life. Prayer and journaling rooted in the scriptures can begin this process. The time honored practices of Lectio Divinia and Holy Imagining take it even deeper. When we put these to work we find that eternal truths come to life in a whole new way, deeply embedded in the workings of our own lived realities.
Words Made Flesh uses the four Gospels as a case study. The four practices are applied to the story of Jesus’ birth, life, death and resurrection. As practices and events are explored in a chronological and systematic manner, we come to appreciate Christ’s life in a whole new way, even as we learn these new practices.
If you’re interested in books more focused on spiritual practice without the exploration of deconstruction, take a look at the faith-ing project guides. Samples of some of the Faith-ing Project guides can be found here. If you would like to go straight to ordering the books at amazon, click here.
It’s such an honor to be involved with projects that I would listen to even if I wasn’t a participant. The ‘Be Still App’ is a prime example. They are an amazing resource and feature several meditations from this page and my books. Find out more here.
