“In this dark and wounded society, writing can give you the pleasures of the woodpecker, of hollowing out a hole in a tree where you can build your nest and say, This is my niche, this is where I live now, this is where I belong.”

Ornitheology was featured on Joni Eareckson Tada's Joni and Friends radio show on March 18. Listen to her four-minute encouragement based on the "Arctic Tern" post. Joni graciously encouraged her listeners to "join the chatter, and learn what the God of the Bible has to teach us through these delightful birds and more." Thank you, Joni, honorary ornitheologist!

On the 25th anniversary of Rich Mullins' passing (Sept. 19), I wrote an article for The Rabbit Room, honoring Rich's capacity for creational attentiveness to a world "shaken forward and shaken free" to a greater promise. If you've never heard of Rich, or the Rabbit Room, that's OK; there's birds too.
