He now resides in Tacoma, Washington where splits his time between writing, connecting churches with incoming refugees, and pretending to like rain and grunge music.

About the Podcast...

God, if you’re not too turned off by the term, tends to sneak up on us, sometimes in unexpected places and sometimes in familiar ones. One telltale sign of the sacred is when we seem to be pulled - toward living more vibrantly, acting more justly, seeing others more humanely - and into better stories. The sacred can be found everywhere, but A Better Story looks in two particular places: the Hebrew and Christian scriptures and the lives of others.

There are no unsacred places; there are only sacred places and desecrated places.
— Wendell Berry
