An Announcement and Introduction

Dear Reader,

It has been just over a year since I launched this blog and website. I began the website with the intention of creating a home for my writing and professional news, as well as a broader forum to discuss American culture and politics, and what it means to be faithful in the 21st-century American context. 

I have enjoyed exploring different ways of approaching these goals, and this site has been valuable to me as an outlet for ideas and work I want to share. Most importantly, I hope that this site has been valuable to you.

I have spent the last few months thinking and planning about the next stage of this website, and particularly this blog, and I am excited to announce that you will see some changes starting this week.

First, I will be writing more regularly here, and the site will be updated more frequently with my writing, and ideas and stories from around the web.Second, and most exciting, is that I have asked Sarah Ngu to become a regular contributor to this website and she has graciously agreed. Sarah is a truly impressive writer and thinker. She is an alum of the Trinity Forum Academy and a graduate of Columbia University. Sarah lives and works in New York City as a freelance writer for businesses. Sarah also writes occasionally for Fare Forward.

I met Sarah several months ago at a gathering hosted by the Trinity Forum Academy, and I was immediately impressed with the depth of her conviction, the graciousness with which she advanced her ideas, and the sincerity of her faith. Sarah will be writing here weekly, where she will trace and analyze the social, moral and philosophical implications of cultural phenomenon, from technology to the media. I am looking forward to joining you in learning from and engaging the ideas Sarah will have to share with us.

Sarah will also work with me to relaunch the “weekly reads of the week” series, where we will aim to share diverse, thought-provoking content from around the web.

I want to thank you, dear readers, for your contribution to the life of this blog and website during its first year of operation. I am eager to find out what lies ahead for us as we seek to love and serve our God and our neighbors.


                                                                                    Yours,
                                                                               Michael
