About Me

My name is Liam Miller, I live on the Central Coast of NSW, Australia. I’m married to a kind and talented artist named Heather, and we have a two-year-old daughter. I work with the Uniting Church in Australia and have almost finished my candidature for Ordained Ministry. I have a Masters of Divinity through Pilgrim Theological College (University of Divinity).

I have had academic work published in Studies in World Christianity and Pacifica, I have also written and produced podcasts for Insights and Together Magazine.

My favourite people to read are James Cone, Elizabeth Johnson, and Michael Chabon. My favourite filmmakers to watch are Powell & Pressburger, Terrence Malick, Sophia Coppola, the Coen Brothers, and Hayao Miyazaki. And my favourite person to listen to is Tom Waits, who is head and shoulders above everyone else.   

About This

Don't think of what you read here as some set in stone final decree on faith and its expression. Rather, imagine you're overhearing someone practice a conversation in a shower, which just happened to find its way online (in love), but will certainly need to be rinsed and repeated before we're through. That way, if like Job's friends, I have to stand before the whirlwind to answer for my words, I can say, "it was just a practice".
