“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life? – Mary Oliver
I am humbled by this question and motivated all at the same time. I choose to pastor a congregation because I want a community that works for the good of others. I choose to stand for people who have never been to church and for those who have been church-goers for their entire lives. No matter the diversity of our developing technology, I need connection in real time with others.
Who am I? I have been Lutheran, United Methodist (let’s pray for inclusion to win in that family feud), and now I am proudly a United Church of Christ pastor. I am an only child married to Elaine, a retired teacher, who tutors early readers in Pontiac and sings in the church choir. I live with Elaine in Lathrup Village and we enjoy camping in the out of doors whenever we can.
Come as you are some Sunday. I would love to know you.
