I am a former American Baptist turned Agnostic turned Lutheran.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Millersville University of Pennsylvania and a Master of Divinity from Lutheran Theological Southeran Seminary in Columbia, SC. I am also a Diaconal Minister candidate for the ELCA. My work mainly focuses in social ministry/justice. In the past, I have worked with homeless individuals.
I consider myself to be a confessional but progressive, evangelical catholic Lutheran. I have shed most of his fundamentalist beliefs of his days as an American Baptist. I do not believe in inerrancy, a literal six day creation, that Jonah was actually swallowed by a large fish, etc.
I currently sit on the board of directors for Hospitality House, a shelter homeless women.
I am married to his wonderful wife, McKenzie. We have a beautiful daughter, Ella, and are the proud parents of a cat, Pecan and a dog, Brigid (named after St. Brigid of Kildare).
I love football and am a huge Steelers fan. I also have a love of hockey and can be seen supporting the Colorado Avalanche or the Pittsburgh Penguins.
I blog about whatever I feel like, but stick mostly to Religion/Theology, Politics, Social Justice, and, on occasion, being a Lutheran. I also read a lot and have been known to review books. I currently review for InterVarsity Press, Oxford University Press, Zondervan, and Augsburg Fortress. I will happily accept manuscripts for review and/or endorsement.
