I’m Phil Rice. I create environments [of all kinds] that inspire the religiously disillusioned  [or simply the worn out] to connect with God more personally and authentically.

Really! I love inspiring the religiously disillusioned [the Christian cynic] to authentically cultivate friendship with God. I believe there’s more to this whole story than doing what we’ve always done, just because it’s how we’ve always done it. Yeah?

I write articles about life together, knowing God, and rhythms of church [among other things]. And I think I approach these topics a little differently than is typical [hopefully in a way that gives a refreshing perspective]. I host the Simple Sessions Community [gathering around simple meditative content] and I’m the founder of Ember [a prayer and creative company]. Oh yeah, and I also regularly release meditative worship content.

Consider yourself among the religiously disillusioned [or tired]? That’s totally okay and so honest, it’s a piece of my story as well. If you’d like, here’s a great place to start, my monthly 5-things email — helpful content for the religiously disillusioned seeking to authentically follow Jesus in real life.

“Phil writes like he speaks – with a God-centered, challenging, winsome humility.  He gives permission to reflect on the edge about what it means to be the Church.” — Lance H.
