About Mike and the purpose of this site

Hi there. I'm Mike and I'm glad you're here.

About me

I’m an entrepreneur, husband and father, writer, and sometime podcaster. Most importantly, I’m a follower of Christ.

I'm interested in topics like the implications of state-run education, Gnosticism and contemporary Christian thought, and which economic system best encourages human flourishing—because who isn't, right?

About this site

This space is for tackling issues like the ones above. Secularism, creativity, heresies, economics, society, and sexuality are the kinds of issues the Body of Christ needs to address. Even so, it's hard to find good teaching on them in the contemporary church.

As believers we're often given the option between a church-ified secularist perspective or faith-based self help—Better Living Through Jesus. Neither are acceptable to the sincere follower.

I'll do my best to get you started by making content available that's relevant, thought provoking, and maybe even useful in your day-to-day life.

Stick around, read a few articles, and let me know what you think.
