Occupation Pastor / clergy

Introduction I am an ordained "elder" (also called "presbyter" or "priest" in some churches) in The United Methodist Church, a wonderful branch of Christ's one holy catholic and apostolic Church. I am married to Christene, my lovely and wonderful wife. I am a disciple of Jesus who resonates with the way of discipleship of John Wesley and the Methodists: a thoughtful, Biblical, and lively faith in Jesus Christ our Savior; a liturgical and sacramental piety in the Anglican tradition that is open to the movement of the Spirit; spiritual disciplines as key to opening our lives to God's manifold grace; an active faith that reaches out to others in witness and service; and a continuity with the classic catholic faith (the "mere Christianity") that has been held in all ages, in all cultures, by all the faithful. The United Methodist Church calls its heritage "catholic, evangelical, and reformed" and "affirms that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Savior of the world, and the Lord of all." I seek to embody that in my faith, ministry, and blogging. I like books and blogs and hiking. I attended LSU for my BA in political theory and SMU for my MDiv.
