The new issue of STAND arrived in my mailbox today!
“Learning To Connect,” the last essay in my fatherhood-as-learning series in STAND Magazine, appears in print here. It tackles isolation, forming male friendships in adulthood, and the examples we set for our kids.
My deepest thanks to STAND Editor-in-Chief Dwayne D. Hayes for providing a regular place for my reflections during the past year. Solidarity, my friend.

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.)
