Jeremy JohnsonJeremy Johnson

I'm a Calvinistic credobaptist who tries to think things through with a biblical perspective. As a member of a Southern Baptist church, I hold to the Baptist Faith & Message. More specifically, my belief system can be accurately represented by Southern Seminary's Abstract of Principles. These are the presuppositions that you will find I bring to the table when discussing any particular issue or doctrine. If you want more biographical information about me, you can find it at my website, wikigesis.com.

For I Know the Plans I Have for… Steve?
Justin VolkerJustin Volker

Howdy. My name's Justin Volker, and I'm a freelance writer from Kansas City, Missouri.

Those of you who have read Randy's mission statement about this blog network will be aware that, in both 'faith' and 'narrative' posts, some writers will challenge or conflict with the theistic position.

I shall be one of those writers.

If you're curious about my beliefs and desire clarification, well--I'm rather agnostic about a lot of things, but I do enjoy discussing religion and the place of religion in the life of the individual and in the spiderweb of society. Perhaps in the process of contributing to this site, I will come to an opinion more definite than that, but for now, this is all I can say.

I hope you enjoy reading what I write. Thanks.

Joy, Such Joy, Such Unpardonable Joy
Kristen HowellKristen Howell

Hi there! I'm Kristen. I'm currently a first year MDIV student at St. Paul School of Theology. I'm a recovering know-it-all and am currently learning the art of having peace saying, "I don't know."

I'm married to my best friend, Ryan, and we currently reside in Olathe, KS, where we grew up. We have an ornery Tortoiseshell cat named Squeaky who ensures that we never have a dull moment. I enjoy learning about and [civilly] discussing theology, working on DIY projects, antiquing, editing people's papers with my red pen and drinking Dr. Pepper. I find the subjects of social justice, mercy and kingdom ethics fascinating, and am always looking for ways in which to integrate what I learn into how I live my life.

Peaceful Politics?
Randall J. GreeneRandall J. Greene

I founded this website, although it certainly wouldn't exist without the encouragement and support of all of the site's writers (not to mention the countless others in my life that have pressed me to deepen and explore my faith). I live in Kansas City, MO. I'm married to the beautiful and brilliant Shannon Greene (yes, the same one that writes for this site). For a living, I design and build websites. I love what I do.

Diversity Is How We Let God Shine Through Our Cultures
Shannon GreeneShannon Greene

Follower of Jesus, wife of Randy, ordained elder in the Church of the Nazarene, proud owner of Oscar, STL Cardinals fan.

I enjoy reading and binge watching t.v. shows on Netflix. I love singing in the car and dancing by myself (no one else really wants to see the white Nazarene girl dancing).

For me, this blog is an outlet where I can discuss theology, the Church, life, and faith. It has truly become a life-giving source of creative expression. Thanks for reading my thoughts, and I would always love to hear your own!
