Nathan Empsall is a prolific writer and public speaker. He has been a reporter for the Spokane, WA, Spokesman-Review and a front-page editor for MyDD (the first major liberal blog). His Daily Kos diaries often reach the recommendation list, he has preached in churches from Nebraska to DC, and he has presented at such conferences and gatherings as RootsCamp, the Yale Colloquium on Religion and Ecology, and the Yale Graduate Conference on Religion and Ecology. Here is a small sampling of his sermons and political writing. Academic papers from Yale University, as well as short fiction, may be added at a future date.
