About me

Introduction I'm a 50+ Lutheran clergyman in Philadelphia trying to make peace with the twenty-first century. I love high church liturgy, gospel hymns, and all the fancy bells and smells. Mostly, I love to share the mythical, mysitcal story of my faith. Lately, however, I've been wondering if anyone's listening. BIO: I was born in Lawrence, KS and grew up in Long Beach, CA. I hold a BA from California State University-Long Beach and a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I've lectured in the Univ. of Wisconsin system and at Long Beach City College. I've also taught learning disabled teens in the Los Angeles School District before earning a Master of Divinity from the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia. I am married to a beautiful lady who is also a Blue Star Mother and tireless advocate for returning veterans.
