Briefly, my name is Nathaniel Porter and I am a PhD student in Sociology at Penn State University. I have studied theology and ministry at Luther Seminary and consider myself a diaconally oriented person of God. If you want to know more about what that means, ask me.

This is my blog of semi-applied sociology of religion, the goal of which is to disseminate some really good and interesting research to people who don’t speak the technical jargon of this discipline. If you want something a little more opinionated, try the sister blog, Faithful Change.

If you’d like to connect with me directly, you can email faithfulchange (at) or find me on Facebook or Twitter.

Check back later for more, but that should at least give you an introduction. Thank you and peace.
