REIMAGINING

OURSELVES, CULTURE, FAITH, EVERYTHING

Hi, I’m Brian.

I’m a former pastor, who was a former actor, and now a guy who navigates the fringes of all things institutional.
Find out more about me here.
I make art, with theology + philosophy. Yeah, I’m a theological artist + storyteller. Take a look around my site to find out more about that.
I’m all about the lifelong process of reimagining ourselves + our culture + our faith … maybe everything. You can click through to my blog, the Reimagining podcast, or get info about having me speak at your event.
You can also check out my available downloads. Thanks for visiting.
Know yourself, reimagine everything, and be the peace.

The Good Muslim: A Parable

One day, a religious expert wanted to test Jesus, so he asked, “How do I experience God-quality life?”

Jesus answered, as he so often did, with a question, “What do you see in your own texts; how do you interpret them?”

Non-directional: Becoming “Non” for Lent | Week 1

To suggest the notion of becoming non-directional in our results-driven, success-oriented, goal-making, and goal-pursuing society seems almost blasphemous. Yet for this first week of Lent, that’s exactly what I’m suggesting we consider becoming.

Embracing Our Stories

Our stories are part of us. They've been part of the human project for all of our shared memory. A man and a woman, a tree and an apple, at the beginning of human history. Or an earth-diving bird who plunges from the great beyond to the depths of the sea, disturbing...
