|Autobiography:||I am an unexpected Lutheran,a convert who has test driven many other spiritual paths along the way. In truth I am a Methodist, Mormon, Metaphysical, and thus a Lutheran hybrid. My spirituality flows from them all. In the end I found sanity and grace in the teachings of the Lutheran faith. I love the diverse way God incarnates into each of us, which was the subject of my DMin dissertation. I also do a limited amount of consulting work through the national firm Kairos and Associates. Currently I am a coach for the Macedonia stewardship Project. In addition, I'm a long time spiritual activist, working on issues of lgbtq equality and anti-racism.|
I am passionate about helping communities of faith (and individuals) discover the growing edge of what God is calling them to do and be in the world. I see community as a means of transformational witness and lived action.
I live in Richfield, MN with my spouse Kathy and a spoiled dog. When I'm not working, I'm reading, sewing, and spending time with friends. I've served as both an ELCA pastor as well as a pastor within Metropolitan Community Churches (MCC) I've also served as an interim pastor which I mention because of the opportunity to learn how to read people, contexts, and congregations. Lastly, I am a second career clergy person. I spent over 25 years in communications and marketing. I enjoy passing on the diversity of my experience within a mentor relationship.
