Howdy! Jonas here... I'm a writer and a seminarian preparing for ordained ministry in the Lutheran church.
Since about 2010, I've been sharing my notes, quips, ramblings, essays, homilies, tomfoolery, and miscellany online. My subject matter is my life from the standpoint of ye olde Christian faith.
Most of my work lives on Common Words, which somehow grew to be the #1 single-author publication on Medium.com. You can also find some of my past work on The Good Men Project, Huffington Post, Observer, and elsewhere.
Other than that, I'm a husband, a dad, a friend, a foe and a lot of other things that aren't super relevant at this juncture. But if you care to learn more about me and my work, you can do that by clicking the orange button right below.
If I had read Jonas's writing when I was much younger I might never have become a Pagan! 🤗

I read Jonas's posts almost every day. I love how he articulates things. I’ve lived my whole life in a religious setting where God was always angry. I've been to many different churches and have never encountered the train of thought that Jonas holds.

The God that Jonas shares sounds wholesome, loving, and beautiful. And truly graceful. Rather than the “I will give you grace, love you always, never forsake you. Oh wait- unless you don’t follow these rules, in which case I will have to deny you were ever mine, and instead send you to burn in eternal damnation” God that I was introduced to at birth. Reading his work brings a comfort I can’t explain.

Jonas is a rebel without being an asshole. Christianity is not “holiness”. It is honesty. And he has it.
