Consider the Stem Cell

Thrilled to have an article published in Christianity Today last Fall! This article explores calling and identity by considering cells, specifically stem cells. You can read the full article here. Below is a brief excerpt:

“I find it encouraging for those of us who feel like unspecialized generalists with an often unclear specialized function or calling to consider the stem cell. Stem cells, while unspecialized, are indispensable—they (if you’ll allow me to anthropomorphize stem cells for a little bit and humor my metaphor) serve the body helping replenish and renew other cells that cannot replenish or renew themselves, and they themselves are replenished, not depleted. In turn, the whole body benefits.”
