A Little Break to Write

So I'm taking a little break (Month and 1/2) from Blogging and Twitter-stuff to pour time into two things that are very important to me. First, I'm planning on making more space to be with my co-conspirator Tonya. We just hit 15 years married and want to enjoy the sun together in our sweaty city.

Second, I just signed a book deal with the wonderful people at The House Studio to release Subterranean: A Radical Rootedness for the Future of the Church. Confession, I'm not a natural writer. I am first a practioner and then I twist-and-turn to figure out how to craft it into words. I find it comical that I failed English Comp in school, was diagnosed with ADHD and dyslexia and now getting the opportunity to publish. Anyhow, I need to write, write, wring my hands, pound my head and write something essential.

So lets see if I can get productive.


  1. Friend,

    Congratulations to you and Tonya on the anniversary! My favorite part of publishing with you is knowing that Subterranean is not a collection manufactured, dormant words, but the product a theology *lived* out.

    We are all cheering for you here!


  2. Dude, I love your posts & tweets. Your book is going to be awesome, a deep contribution to the missional convo! (your website isn't letting me put my name for some reason: @Brian_Swanson)

  3. 15 years? Newly weds!! Congratulations and this world would be in a really sad state if weren't for all the ADHD's etc. of this world keeping everything running smoothly. Good luck and God speed with the book. I will be getting my copy as soon as it's available.

    Cheers, Andrew (undiagnosed but so far from normal)
