Renewal and Retreat

This week I will be away from the blog for a spiritual renewal and retreat.  I am looking forward to it; this will be the first time I have ever done one. I hope to come back refreshed and focused on the future ahead.

I am happy to announce that I have been asked by two different websites to be contributors.  I am honored and thankful for the opportunity.

I have been asked by Radical Parents (  and The Good Men Project (

About Radical Parents

Radical Parenting is an idea that came about through prayer, conversations, and observation of the typical “church-going family.” The goal of this site is to be a resource that informs, encourages, and even challenge parents. We pose the question, “What does it look like to raise children who spend their lives investing in the Kingdom of God?” Radical Parenting is about answering that question.

While parents have been tasked by God to raise their children, we want to provide you with resources, suggested reading material, pop cultural perspective, and social media understanding. While we can’t promise that your teenagers will think you are any cooler we pray that through you they will see the importance of investing their lives in a faith rooted in Christ, a faith that is their own.

About Good Men Project

We are a community of 21st Century thought leaders around the issue of men’s roles in modern life. We explore the world of men and manhood in a way that no media company ever has, tackling the issues and questions that are most relevant to men’s lives. We write about fatherhood, family, sex, ethics, war, gender, politics, sports, pornography, and aging. We shy away from nothing. Our content reflects the multidimensionality of men — we are alternatively funny and serious, provocative and thoughtful, earnest and light-hearted. We search far and wide for new stories and new voices from “the front lines of modern manhood.” And we do it without moralizing and without caricaturizing our audience; we let guys be guys, but we do it while challenging confining cultural notions of what a “real man” must be.

Stay tuned for links and articles from these two great websites.

Thank you all again for supporting me and for reading.

In Christ,

Rev. Evan
