Teaching + Interviews
For me, teaching is one of the most humbling, vulnerable and mysterious endeavors I’ve ever experienced. I wake up, pray, read, write, edit, read some more, ask questions, write, take a break, find something to distract me, pace, walk the halls, find someone to talk sports with, question my calling, want to quit, start praying again, back to the office, start typing, God whispers, and something seems to happen.
It’s a complex and soul-baring process that has the ability to bring me to my knees in awe. It keeps me dependent, expectant and grounded in Christ. I can’t imagine doing anything else on the planet. It’s such an honor to craft sermons for people all over the world. I still can't believe I get to do this with my life!
