Welcome to Comfort & Challenge. This blog’s official “grand opening” is Sunday, November 29, 2015 – the first day of Advent. I hope you will join me this Advent season and beyond for an exploration of scripture, culture, and faith through a progressive Christian lens. While the intent of this blog is mainly devotional, its shape and growth are yet to be determined. That direction will undoubtedly be influenced by your feedback about which posts you find inspiring, interesting, or otherwise valuable. I look forward to sharing a spiritual path with you on our initial journey to Bethlehem … and wherever else the road may lead us. Peace and grace!
