I am a student of the sacred, an observer of life, and a professor of pastoral ministry.

Posts reflect experiences that give me glimpses of truth, information I find helpful, observations on current events and issues, and suggested resources.  Inclusion of or links to material do not indicate that I agree with everything the source says or does. Material shared here does not necessarily reflect the views or positions of the academic institution I serve. Until April of 2016, I was a local church pastor. Posts prior to that date express ideas and experiences accordingly.

Comments are welcome.  Interaction with others is a form of fellowship. Precepts for constructive and gracious communication can be found in Ephesians 4:25-32.  I may jump in occasionally.

The banner image is a picture I took standing on Mt. Precipice, the traditional site outside of Nazareth described in Luke 4 where the angry crowd “drove (Jesus) out of the town and brought him to the brow of the hill on which their town was built, so that they could throw him down the cliff.” (Luke 4:29 ESV)
