In February 2016, Project Contributor David Dark’s newest publication, Life’s Too Short to Pretend You’re Not Religious, will be released. Writing in response to modern day whispers of the death of religion, Dark argues that religion is far more intertwined with everyday life and human experience than we realize. The fact of religion is the fact of relationship. It’s the shape our love takes, the lived witness of everything we’re up to for better or worse, because witness knows no division. Director Charles Marsh writes, “Here alone are the comedy and chaos that define the human condition and lead us gently or not into the strange new world of grace.” For more information on the publication, click here.
