Because climate change is a disclosure that is constantly impinging on the edge of our awareness, I think, write, and teach about the forms of life that can be cultivated amid this uneven revelation. I turn especially to the wisdom of religious traditions for living through the ending of worlds. There are resources here, not only ideational ones but also practical.

I am an assistant professor in the practice of theology and ethics at Emory University’s Candler School of Theology. In this capacity I teach courses on religion and ecology, religion and the ethics of nonviolence, organizing, political theology, and social change. I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Notre Dame in 2017, in the joint program of the Department of Theology and Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies.

My first book ¡Presente! Nonviolent Politics and the Resurrection of the Dead was published by Georgetown University Press in late 2019. My current research examines the apocalyptic dimensions of talk about climate change, and how apocalyptic political theologies can offer resources for pastoral and political engagement in the midst of endings.
