About the Blog

Sometimes I wake up at 6 and have coffee with Kierkegaard.

I am a Hutterite who, after reading Søren Kierkegaard’s Concluding Unscientific Postscript realized he had some things to say and many things to think about. In this blog, I’ve been wrestling with the thought of Kierkegaard, while also expanding out into many other topics. I’ve written about truth, faith, power, Christianity and politics, the church, the modern condition and other themes. Recently I’ve also tried my hand at movie analysis.

This blog is me thinking out loud, so there is an evolution to my thinking. Some of the themes I explore in my earliest pieces, are more fully developed in my most recent pieces.

I would say the general perspective I bring to all of my pieces is very much influenced by the Kierkegaardian emphasis on human experience, the scandal of the incarnation, the foolishness of the cross, and the uncertainty and even irrationality of faith. My piece “A Theology of Weakness” brings a lot of these themes together.

I hope my blog makes you think in new directions. If you have any questions or comments I would love to hear from you.
