He has held appointments at Oregon State University; is a Member of the Center of Theological Inquiry in Princeton, New Jersey; a past president of the Society for Agriculture and Human Values; and a popular speaker who has lectured across Europe, the US, and Canada, and in Israel, South Korea, Belize, and New Zealand.
