Jeff Chu

Our theme speaker was  Jeff Chu, who is also one who persists in Seeding Hope. He’s a journalist, editor, ordination candidate with the Reformed Church in America, Evolving Faith podcast host and author of Does Jesus Really Love Me? A Gay Christian’s Pilgrimage in Search of God in America. When the theme planning committee spoke to Jeff in March, he was already digging his garden – though he knew more snow would come before seeding time. He believes we all need a robust theology of the compost.

“The more time I spend at the compost pile,” says Jeff, “the more I see that death never gets the last word and the more I ask: Isn’t the story of compost really just the story of God, turning fear to courage, sorrow to joy, death to life?”

We are seeding the hope of God’s Promise
