I am an Episcopal priest serving as curate for children's, youth, and young adult ministries. I currently work with college students at Oberlin College through Christ Episcopal Church, and I direct an inter-parish youth group centered in contemplative practices. As the gay grandson of a victim of the AIDS epidemic, I spend a lot of my time thinking about HIV/AIDS, art as survival and revelation, and how the church can learn from the LGBTQ+ communities. I am a former (but in my heart, always) Taizé "permanent" (volunteer), and I wonder how monastic practices might help the church better proclaim the Good News at the end of the Anthropocene.
