I’ve come to recognize that if I’m scared to do something, it’s usually worth doing—that there’s something meaningful, something good on the other side of that fear.
How fearful it is to come out of hiding, lay ourselves bare to our suffering and the suffering of others, and risk being and becoming more. But it is our path to liberation. It is a risk worth taking.

I am a pastor, writer, and editor/publisher of The Presbyterian Outlook. Before joining The Outlook staff in June of 2021, I served as the Dean of the Chapel for Monmouth College. My experiences working with marginalized students and volunteer teaching at a men’s prison inspired me to write Necessary Risks: Challenges Privileged People Need to Face.
