preaching

Currently, the greatest joy in my life is opening the wisdom

of ancient sacred texts for today's people, researching and thinking

on their behalf, then bringing them good news of all the ways

God is actively redeeming the world, and

meeting us where we are with what we need.

Here you will find themes of grace and compassion,

a fresh take on familiar Scriptures,

and insight into Lutheran theology and practice.
