Welcome! You’re on this page because you’re curious about me, so here goes:
This is a place to exchange thoughts and share ideas about anything related to life with God, Christ’s Body (the church), ministry (lay and clergy), and theology. I like to share things I’m reading and reflect together with others who hold similar interests. I hope you find it edifying and I appreciate feedback, but please, keep it charitable.
Oh, who am I? That’s probably why you clicked here, after all. I’d go with this:
Child of God. Husband to a wonderful wife. Jesus-follower. Pastor to a great church. Dog lover. MMA fan. Student. Teacher. Bibliophile. A guy spoiled rotten by grace.
Speaking of grace, the title of this blog comes from the final stanza of Charles Wesley’s hymn Weary of All This Wordy Strife:
Join’d to the hidden church unknown
In this sure bond of perfectness,
Obscurely safe, I dwell alone,
And glory in th’ uniting grace,
To me, to each believer given,
To all Thy saints in earth and heaven.
The views on this blog are mine, solely mine, and only mine, and do not represent the views of my wonderful congregation or the United Methodist Church.
Thanks for stopping by, and peace be to you.
P.S. Check out the right side of the page to sign up to follow my blog and check out some blogs that I recommend. Feel free to look me up on Facebook and Twitter. I am also a contributor to an exciting new project called Via Media Methodists. If you’d like to read something of mine more on the academic spectrum, I offered a paper as part of the UMC’s reflection on “online” communion.
