For several years I’ve been building notes on some themes I’ve come to consider important in marriage, fatherhood, ministry, and also society. My desire to engage and interact with these ideas has only grown over that time.
While I’m sure I’ll eventually write about why I’ve felt reluctant to launch this project, for now I can say that one of my main excuses for inaction was the lack of a good name for the project. But I don’t have that excuse anymore.
This is The Long Way, an independent publication that explores the cultivation of practical wisdom and the craft of vocation in pursuit of goods that don’t come quickly. The Long Way resists the default settings of life in order to build something better.
For reasons I’ll get to later, much of what I write here will be accessible only to Members. But, a basic Membership is free. So, to get started, I cordially invite you to join me on the long way — because the long way is worth taking.
