Hi! My name is David. Nice to meet you! I’m a semi-progressive Christian blogger (in the sense that I’m a Christian and I blog) and storyteller. I’m also a theology nerd and social activist (in the sense that I sign change.org petitions at least once a week).
I grew up Fundismatic: I spent most of my childhood in Christian Fundamentalist churches, but spent a few years in a charismatic megachurch and a few more in non-denominational churches.
I quit a computer repair job to work on the ropes course of a United Methodist camp in Southwestern Pennsylvania. Until I married my wife, it ranked as the best decision I have ever made.
Then I went off to college to learn how to make Good Christian Movies™. I mostly learned that rather than having problems that needed fixing, Christian movies were the problem that needed fixing.
I took classes on Christianity. They relieved me of my impression that I knew everything there was to know about it. I also took classes on sociology, psychology, western civilization, the Old Testament, and philosophy. These classes relieved me of my impression that I knew jack about anything.
I’m now a Presbyterian Church (USA) seminary student at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and a student pastor.
