About me

I am a pastor (at Marda Loop Church), teacher and writer who lives in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. All I want in life is to know God more (and to read everything he’s written). For the past 20 years I’ve been exploring a worldview that seeks to discern God's voice in all things: the Bible, the arts, sport, science, film, music, literature, history, mathematics, nature and human nature. My first book, The Day Metallica Came to Church: Seeing the Everywhere God in Everything (Square Inch, 2010), listened for God's whispers in pop culture. My second book, Every Job a Parable; What Walmart Greeters, Nurses and Astronauts tell us about God (Navpress/Tyndale (US) and Hodder and Stoughton (UK), 2017), listens for God's words at work. I have been awarded three John Templeton Foundation sub-grants to explore the intersection of faith and science in the context of preaching and I'm also part of a Science for Seminaries grant at Ambrose Seminary. I'm also a fellow with Sinai and Synapses (a NYC based faith science fellowship) and am currently writing my third book on how science can help us know God more.
