Welcome to the web site, blog, and portfolio of Jacob Brenton.

I’m glad you’re here. I’m a second year divinity student at Truett Seminary. I talk about Baptist polity too much. I make web sites for people. My dream job would involve listening to people, teaching the liberating Christ, planning worship, building church web sites, and having season tickets to the Houston Astros.

The Work of the Church

Preparing for the Relentless Return of Sunday

Each Sunday we’re given the opportunity to worship, the opportunity to take the Texts we’ve been given and make them new, the opportunity to do something extremely counter cultural in this world. I’m not currently on a church staff, but each week I look at the Lectionary Texts for the week and in different ways, try to contextualize our sacred stories for the good of the world.
