My favorite part about teaching at Johnson is: The deep friendships I am able to make with our students.
When I’m not teaching, I love to: Take long walks with my wife, watch great films, drink great coffee, and foster great friendships.
In my classes, students can expect: To be challenged to see their world and themselves in profoundly new ways, but also to be listened to and believed in.
My best advice to a new student in my program is: Your college years are not preparation for your life, they are your life.
Because of my influence, I most want my students to become: “Two-handed Warriors”–men and women committed to both the life of the mind and the life of the Spirit; to both spiritual formation and social justice; to both global spiritual awakening and society-wide culture-making.
The myth-busting truth about my discipline I most want people to understand is: You don’t have to be deeply religious to be deeply spiritual, but you do have to become profoundly intentional.
A quote that influences how I live is: “You don’t think your way into a new kind of living. You live your way into a new kind of thinking.” – Henry Nouwen
