Flannery O’Connor insists that good fiction must be grounded in place; in this essay, Andrew W. E. Carlson discovers that the same can be said for church.
Andrew W. E. Carlson lives in Seattle with his wife, Lisa, and their baby daughter, Cedar Harrow. He is pastor of liturgy for Awake Church and a part-time carpenter. Carlson spends his free time climbing in the mountains, sitting by a fire with a novel, or sitting by a fire in the mountains. He is a recent master of divinity graduate of The Seattle School.
