For several years, I've been trying to appease a restless desire to do more with the incredible gifts of faith, hope, and love that have been instilled in me through Jesus Christ and his Church. I don't consider myself anyone's first pick to be a leading voice in the Church, but it seems we are in a season in which many of our leaders are more interested in exercising power than they are serving as Christ commanded. And many of our good leaders (our first picks) are overwhelmed and the reinforcements are needed to fill in. If you feel a similar calling, I invite you to help me by enlisting as a reinforcement for this work. With your support, I can expand those efforts and find needed collaborators in community.

I've done a few videos in the past criticizing certain persuasions within art and music, especially in the context of sacred art, and I have to admit, that's pretty easy to do. It doesn't take a brilliant or courageous person to debunk something.
Let me start off by saying that I've really enjoyed getting familiarized with Dr. Jordan Peterson's perspective. I think he has a lot of great insights and I'd recommend anyone with an open mind, to check him out and listen to what he has to say.
Now that the dust is settling a little (although likely to be stirred right back up again), I've been reflecting a lot on how we can move forward and what the takeaways are from the scandals in the Catholic Church.
