Tom Sine

Tom Sine holds a Ph.D. in history with a minor in strategic foresight. He has worked for three decades with a broad range of churches, non-profits like Habitat for Humanity and Tear Fund UK as well as college students and recent grads to create new ways to live and join those making a difference in these increasingly turbulent times. 

Tom and Christine Sine, and their pup, Goldie, live in an intergenerational community in Seattle where they seek to model a new way of living for the 2020s called the Mustard Seed House. They and their six other residents share a weekly meal and liturgy, monthly gardening and generous hospitality when social distancing is reduced.

Christine has a very active blog on creative spiritual practices for times like these: www.godspacelight.com. Check out her newest book: The Gift of Wonder by IVP. Christine also hosts webinars on spirituality and gardening.

2020s Foresight: Three Vital Practices for Thriving in a Decade of Accelerating Change is a new book published by Fortress Press that Tom Sine has written with his friend Dwight Friesen who teaches theology at the Seattle School of Theology and Psychology and is a leader in the Parish Collective.

Tom and Dwight offer 2020s Foresight Webinars in which they describe practical ways Christian leaders and educators can enable those they work with to:

  1. Anticipate incoming waves of change so they have lead time to create new ways to respond
  2. Innovate by learning to research a broad array of creative responses
  3. Reflect on how to select innovative responses that both engage the new challenges and that reflect the way of Jesus.
