Learning To Smell the Flowers

I’m thrilled to share my newest fatherhood reflection, “Learning To Smell the Flowers,” published today by STAND Magazine!

This is the first in a series of essays on fatherhood as learning that I’ll be contributing to the magazine during the coming year.

Thank you to STAND Magazine and Founder/Managing Editor Dwayne D. Hayes for their support and solidarity!

Letter to My Toddler

The On Being blog just published my guest contribution, “Letter to My Toddler.” This one means a lot to me.

If you love this piece or know someone who can benefit from reading it, please share it. You and they are not alone.

(If you’re not familiar with On Being, it’s an outstanding website and radio show/podcast on religion and spirituality, hosted by Krista Tippett — or, as On Being puts it, “a social enterprise with a radio show at its heart.” Highly recommended.)
