Welcome to my site. I’m so glad you’re here.

It’s an exciting time of life: our new baby is due any day now, my book The Skeletons in God’s Closet is coming out this Fall and the sun is starting to shine in another beautiful Portland summer.

We’re officially launching the blog this September, but I wanted to first say hello and invite you to peruse the site in the meantime. I’m taking this Summer to focus on our new baby, a couple other writing projects and some downtime with my family. But come this Fall . . .

I hope for this site to be a place where:

  • Theology hits pavement: as we encounter God not in the mathematical abstractions of ivory towers but in the dirt and concrete of everyday life.
  • Justice is celebrated: through inspiring stories of everyday folks doing amazing things as they follow Jesus in my hometown and around the world.
  • Culture is engaged: where movies, music and books intersect and collide with Jesus and the hope of his kingdom.
  • Worship is emboldened: through an infusion of theological depth, poetic imagination and everyday accessibility into our life with God.

I hope you enjoy the site! And look forward to seeing you again in the Fall.

In the meantime, make yourself at home, stay as long as you like, help yourself to anything in the fridge . . . and hit me up on twitter (@butlerjosh) if you enjoy your stay!
