I feel like a lot of you do: Politically homeless. Spiritually thirsty. Financially and relationally fragile. Life in the mid-21st century has left many of us feeling lost and yearning for belonging. You're not alone. To make sense of our moment, I talk with writers, historians, educators, innovators, friends, and family about current events, political philosophy, history, family, and faith to strive for change — within ourselves, our communities, and our nation. I examine news and culture from a Christian libertarian perspective to understand today's divisions. From there, I want to envision a more optimistic and prosperous tomorrow through political and cultural action that embraces mercy. Subscribe to be a part of something different.
