Theology of Home Project

Conservatives often talk policy and principles while progressives tend to focus on narratives. Deeper personal narratives help drive and shape politics in ways that we should not underestimate, nor should we cede this ground. EPPC’s Theology of Home Project proactively advances an ordered vision of home and family by expanding into broader methods of engaging women such as developing retreats and workshops, hosting a podcast with advice and analysis, and growing and expanding daily engagement through their online magazine. All of these efforts are aimed at assisting and inspiring women (and men) in the vitally important work of home and family. We are well past the days of being able to rely on the culture for much of any help. In fact, much of the messaging children receive is aimed at dismantling our efforts in the home. We aim to advise and equip women and men so that they can form the future, knowing that effective and formidable formation in the home is deeply connected to our ability to identify, pursue, and advocate for the good in society.

Led by EPPC Fellows Carrie Gress and Noelle Mering, the Theology of Home Project focuses on equipping biblically orthodox Americans in living out the faith under the challenging new circumstances of twenty-first century America.

Gress and Mering are the co-authors of Theology of Home: Finding the Eternal in the Everyday and Theology of Home II: The Spiritual Art of Homemaking. The duo has also developed the online women’s magazine, a site devoted to exploring the far-reaching interests, from lifestyle to faith, of women today.

At EPPC they look carefully at the important role the home plays in life, culture, and public policy. With the advent of radical feminism, the home has been denigrated at the expense of the family, the basic cell of civilization. And while efforts have been made to restore the culture, little progress will be made without a restoration of the home. For fifty years the importance of home has been ignored, diminished, and even attacked or ridiculed. Yet what it signifies speaks to a universal human longing and a vital piece for us to reclaim.
