My name is Ben Simpson.

Welcome to my Substack. I’ve been writing on the web since the early 2000s about the Christian faith, theology, church leadership, church and technology, culture, art, media, my family, sports…whatever has caught my fancy, really. But mostly I’ve written about faith.

If you are interested in Christian faith, if you are a ministry leader or someone who wants to think more deeply about Christian discipleship, if you’re looking for a laugh or a smile or an “ah-ha,” then you should sign up for my newsletter, follow along, and, if you read something you like, you should share it with others.

This is an occasional newsletter. Most issue on Fridays. Every issue includes a reflection, one or two photographs, updates on what I’ve been reading and watching, and links to the latest posts on my website, when there’s fresh material.

I invite you to subscribe. I’d love to have you as a reader.
