My name is Taj.


I’m a black, transgender, Christian, all of which drastically affect how I see the world and, in turn, how I see God. 

Theology, to me, is a giant, open-ended question. Rather than asking “what” God is, I prefer to ask “how” and “why.” I’m pretty content with not having answers. I see no limit to the imagination, and the questions leave lots of room for imagining.

During my everyday life, I work in higher education, devour science fiction and fantasy novels, attempt to fix up old typewriters, and play guitar on the weekends.  I received my MDiv from Harvard Divinity School in 2016 and am seeking ordination in the United Church of Christ.

I’m available to preach at your church, speak at your event, or write for your blog/publication– contact me.
