Guest Posting for the American Jesus

I am excited to be guest posting over at Zack Hunt’s awesome-ous blog, the American Jesus today. I talk about how the Church needs to listen to Louis C.K and allow ourselves to lament:

It’s not comfortable to be sad. We have figured out ways to avoid it with our stuff, our feel-good testimonies, and our Scripture quips. The greatest irony lies in this: the frantic rush to redemption stirs up a flurry of dust which buries our sadness deeper, until all that’s left is a bunch of church people trying to make people feel good, and the truly sad people are pushed further and further out.

Please head over there to read the whole post, and thank you Zack, for so graciously hosting me.
