I am the Senior Editor for Foundations for Laity Renewal, a nonprofit organization in Texas founded by the H. E. Butt Foundation (and the same family that owns and operates the H. E. B. grocery company). Practically speaking, this means I spend my days helping lead a team of 20 or so editors at TheHighCalling.org.
And, yes, my boss is Mr. Butt.
Although this site contains the word “editing” in the title because that is what I do, I rarely talk about the mechanics of editing here unless someone asks me a direct question.
Instead, I spend my time here finding God in strange places. Sometimes this means I link to articles and thoughts at The High Calling. Other times I find God in poetry, family experiences, zombie movies, good music, social media observations.
The thing about God is that he is everywhere. We like this idea, but mostly we expect that to mean that God is in church, sitting nicely in a pew with God arms crossed across a God chest not making too much noise during the service. Maybe we sometimes want God to be with us at home or in the hospital. God is in those places of course, but also in poetry and in the office and in the moment when you have to plunge the toilet because it is clogged up from something one of the kids flushed down there. Yes, God is even in the toilet.
This is not sacrilege. It is gospel.
