Writing

Interfaith America published my review of Springtide Research Institute's annual report in an article called "Religion and Young People: Relational Authority and the Potatoes in the Basement."

Sojourners Magazine has hosted my film reviews of Parasite and Get Out, as well as my writing on Digital SacramentsLenten hashtags of lament, and the 75th anniversary of the Japanese American incarceration.

Inheritance Magazine has welcomed my writing on a number of subjects. I appreciated the chance to question Christianity Today’s anti-black racism and to eulogize Laquan McDonaldJames ConeMartin Luther King Jr., and Rachel Held Evans for the publication. More can be viewed on my author’s page here.
