In a world where comfort and stability trump passion and purpose, being homeless and unemployed for the sake of the kingdom doesn’t make a lot of sense. Surely when Jesus sent the disciples out with only a walking stick he wasn’t suggesting that I do the same, we think, and go back to scrolling through Facebook.
But God is still calling and still demanding radical discipleship. For some people, this radical discipleship takes place within the context of a “normal” life. For me, it’s a little different.
After two degrees in theology and five years of teaching religion, I felt that God was calling me to follow him in a more literal way, so I quit my job, packed everything into my car, and hit the road. Since June 2012, I’ve been a hobo for the kingdom, traveling the country speaking to anyone who’ll listen about the goodness of God, Catholic apologetics, Christian morality, and the life of prayer.
Whatever your group, whatever the topic, wherever you are,1 I want to help you love the Lord. I’ve spoken to groups from 6 to 600, to audiences that range from kindergarteners to the elderly. Look through the website to get a feel for my style, then click “Contact Me” to invite me to speak. You won’t be sorry.
