Cameron is a Postulant for Holy Orders in the Episcopal Church. Though he grew up just outside of Nashville, TN, Cameron's postulancy comes out of the Diocese of Springfield, IL. He's currently pursuing an M.Div. from Sewanee: The University of the South in Sewanee, TN after which he willÑGod willingÑbe ordained deacon and later, priest. Consequently, he loves anything Anglican and hates bad vestments. He graduated with distinction from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, earning a degree in English Literature, and now, according to some scientific reports, bleeds orange and blue. In addition to his interests in writing, religion and culture, Cameron enjoys the literature of the late Middle Ages to the Early Renaissance (esp. Chaucer), the poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins, and an Oxford literary group called the Inklings. He believes some of the best worship music was written before 1700. (Don't believe him? Just Google "Allegri's Miserere," or anything having to do with either "Thomas Tallis" or "Palestrina." He's serious. Do it.) That said, he's got a soft spot for Fleet Foxes, Coldplay and Flogging Molly. Cameron loves drinking deeply of the richness of life, spending time with his fiancee, and playing with his dog, Arthur. He is the co-founder of the site Faith Line Protestants, which seeks to explore the intersection of evangelism, service, and interfaith cooperation. Cameron's work has also appeared on the Huffington Post and the Washington Post's "On Faith" blog. Folksy wisdom and dry wit are always appreciated.

As this feeds calls for a new, moderate party, Cameron Nations examines what effect, if any, it would have on American Christianity.

A Politics in Progress

The Christian posture of grace and patience rarely carries over to their political stances. In his debut column, Cameron Nations tries to get past all the opinions about whose side Jesus would be on to what kind of person he would be. And what that means for the rest of us.
