Hi, my name is Travis.
I was raised in a Christian home, have gone to church all of my life, and have been teaching in Christian schools my entire career. However, despite “growing up Christian,” I had a lot of questions which led to a lot of doubts. My questions went years without answers. My doubts went years without relief. But, I studied, and God directed. I thought, and God guided. I prayed, and God blessed.
By the grace of God, I have come a long way.
Even after finding many answers, it often seems that I have more questions now than ever. Nevertheless, the more I study the more I find my belief in God confirmed, my reliance on the Bible strengthened, and my faith in Jesus Christ deepened. As a result, my view of culture with all of its variations and issues is enlightened. To quote C.S. Lewis,
I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.
The work I do on Bread & Fish is the overflow of a personal journey. Here, I share my thoughts on theology, philosophy, and culture. The questions are real, the discussion is clear, the thinking is solid…and the sarcasm is frequent.
As a philosopher and a teacher, I have given myself to build God’s kingdom by discipleship of the mind. I have fifteen years of experience, teaching high school and college age students what it means to live life for God’s glory and people’s good. Currently, I am teaching in a Christian school in South Carolina, and I am working toward a masters degree in philosophy.
