About the Creators of The OA for Lent
Martin Malzahn and Keith Anderson
Martin and Keith have been friends for nearly fifteen years. They met when they were both recently ordained Lutheran pastors living in New England. They share an interest for the intersection of pop culture, technology, spirituality, and religion— and binge watching, of course.
Martin is interested in media literacy, multi-faith dialogue, and the ways in which both inform public and private practices of faith.
Keith is interested in the ways we use digital technologies to build community, engender faith, and share the Gospel.
