A Tale of Two Callings
What if the thing you thought your whole life was about — the thing you thought you were always meant to do, inexorably and ineffably called to do — actually wasn’t?
Or, perhaps it was, but only for a time. In fact, in the grand scheme of things, in light of the larger journey, it was really just a way to get you to another way — a different calling, the thing you are really meant to do, now.
For a long time, the thing I thought I was meant to do was “the ministry,” and I moved my whole life in that one direction. Until the pitfalls and disasters of that direction made it very clear that my once-passionate sense of calling to ministry was no longer working — that it was, in fact, dead.
Now, a new calling is evolving for me, and it’s all about writing and creating in a way that brings greater flourishing into people’s lives. That starts with my own life, but it includes yours, too: I want to help you find flourishing in faith, life, and creativity.
So, welcome! This is where I’m living out this new calling, and I’m so stoked that you’re here. Over the last ten years, I’ve written books and articles for all kinds of publications, but if you want to read my best writing each week, check out my newsletter, The Letter Z:
