I am an unexpected Lutheran.  Finding my way to the Lutheran faith wasn’t anything I anticipated. I landed here without much fanfare but not before I did the Goldilocks thing, experiencing many other spiritual paths along the way.  In truth I am a Lutheran hybrid.   My spirituality flows from all of the bread crumbs dropped by God along the journey.  In the end  I found sanity and grace in the teachings of Martin Luther and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. It has felt like slipping into a favorite chair.  And so as Martin Luther kind of said,  “here I sit, I can do no other, so help me God. Amen.

Professionally I am a Chaplain with Mercy Bon Secours hospitals and also the pastor of St. John’s Lutheran Church within the Southern Ohio Synod of the ELCA.

I am passionate about helping communities of faith discover the growing edge of what God is calling them to do and be in the world and I see community as a means of transformational witness and lived action.

I hope to use this blog to, well, express myself, saying things here in ways that I don’t always say in the pulpit.  Some of the posts will be from sermons but not all.  Here goes. Enjoy. I pray that the things you find here make you think and deepen your faith.
