The summer of 2018 is busy!

In addition to my work as a writer covering faith and politics, I spent much of the winter as a consultant to organizers of a rally on the National Mall April 4 commemorating the 50th anniversary of the King assassination.

I'm working on a proposal for a book about de facto theological universalism and the American presidency. My argument is that the presidency is not well suited for strong sectarians, and I explain this through the lens of American civil religion.

this summer I will be working with Independent candidates and organizations that support them. I am looking for more opportunities to work with people who want to break the two-party system.

I am also adding consulting clients as I continue helping faith leaders and religious organizations achieve their public-policy goals.

Happily, I will be working from the road a lot this summer, with family trips planned to Maine, Florida, and north Carolina. At home in Baltimore, my bride and I have our hands full with three young children.
