Christians are stuck in the middle of a Kingdom that is here and also not yet. A political climate that calls for extremes rather than wrestling in the ambiguity of finding the greatest common good. A culture that screams “me, me, me” and a Good Book that warns about love of self. A call to be in the world but not of it.

We are in the middle, friend. God is faithful, and He has provided His Word, so let’s lean into that ruling ambiguity and make much of Him however we are able.

I am specifically interested in what being a Christian looks like in a wealthy, Western context.

We are among the wealthiest people in the world, but we often find ourselves wanting more. We are in the top 1%, but we feel like we have little.

What must change? How can we experience greater financial peace (to steal a phrase) while also living out our call to love our neighbor as ourselves and care for the poor?

Wrestling with these questions led to my first book, The Wardrobe Fast: How Cheap Clothes Hurt People (and How We Can Do Better). I’m not sure where the questions lead from here, but I’m excited to find out.

I so look forward to having you join me.

Best,

Michelle
