About Me (Jeremy John)

Sometime in high school I accidentally ate the red pill* instead of the more harmless blue one, and I've been an activist ever since.

In 2003 I spent six months in prison for civil disobedience while working to close the School of the Americas, converting to Christianity while imprisoned. I started the Food and Faith Network at the Quixote Center, building grassroots alternative food economies in faith institutions that embody the beloved community.

I am currently building a website that will connect farms and churches, mosques, and synagogues to buy fresh vegetables directly and distribute them on a sliding scale to those in need.

I am a totally untrained and unqualified theologian working to build a praxis-informed Christianity that can disrupt our money-driven society with a Christ-formed "economy" of love that trickles up from the base.

240_1230068_10151817769012225_2136780119_n.jpgI contribute to the Good Men Project, Geez, Sojourners, the Huffington Post and Red Letter Christians, blogging here.

I'm a poet in process of writing a dystopian science fiction novel.

I love to fix broken machines and to love the broken people who are outside the normal's pale.

If you want to know me better, you can always follow me on twitter.

*"red pill" in this context does not refer to the myopic "men's rights" movement. I am a feminist.
