Some information...

I teach elementary school in Northern Colorado. When not spending my time with 5 year olds, I enjoy exploring the mountains and finding spiritual community outside of the church. I have been theologically shaped to a greater degree than I’m probably even aware of by listening to decades of heavy metal music. I’m as surprised by all of this as you are.


About the Blog...

Fracture and Failure is an attempt to trace out what it might mean for theology to provide a means of immersing ourselves in the complexities and contradictions of life, rather than sealing ourselves off from them. This blog seeks to explore the ways in which apophatic thought, speech, and action might begin to discover God precisely where things begin to breakdown and our limitations stare us full in the face. Traditional and subversive theological and philosophical texts, literature, music, the resources of recovery, and pop culture are all likely to make an appearance here.

Faith cannot save you from the claims of reason, except insofar as it preserves and protects that wonderful, terrible time when reason, if only for a moment, lost its claim on you.
— Christian Wiman
