• Hey, I'm Jonas Ellison

    I'm a writer, a working househusband, a dad, and a midlife seminarian.


    I mostly write about mystical Christianity, Lutheran theology, the sacred nature of vocation, and the radical grace of God (with a healthy dose of personal miscellany thrown in for good measure).


    Here are the most important things...


    • Almost every day, I write a personal email to the kind folks subscribed to The Jonas Letters - a private email newsletter thingy that I pour my heart and soul into. You can subscribe for free below. 
    • For a digital snapshot of my life, head over to my personal Tumblr blog here. There, you'll find a mishmash of my Jonas Letters posts and random pics from my fairly mundane life, but hey, it's something to do.
    • I also have a more extensive body of written work (over 1500 posts) at my personal publication on Medium.com, The Jonas Chronicles. I used to be there exclusively and have recently branched out.
    • If you're a faith and theology geek like me and care to go deeper into my work, head over to my Patreon page.


    Just because I share stuff online and have my own website doesn't mean anything. Really, I'm just figuring it out as I go just like the next person. But I'm so glad you're here and I hope you find what you're looking for.

  • My new online course!

    I just launched an online course on the ancient Christian contemplative practice of centering prayer.


    It's been my go-to practice for two years now and has given me a deeper connection with the ever-loving divine ground of my being (to put it in mystical terms).


    In this course, I share everything I've learned and gleaned about the basics of the practice. Learn more below.
