I will do my best to answer your questions on living for Christ today. I will draw on the Bible, tradition, reason, and experience. I am most knowledgeable about the United Methodist Church, but I am passingly familiar with most others, as well. If I don`t know the answer, I can and will point you in the right direction.

Experience in the area

Experience in the area: I was a UMC pastor from 1988 until the summer of 2010, and dealt with almost every question along the line.

Education/Credentials

M. Div., Christian Theological Seminary Indianapolis), 1991

What do you like about this subject?

Everyone can be a personal friend of God. Christianity is not a religion as much as it is a relationship.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

Living the life of faith is a never-ending process of becoming more and more like Christ.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Grace is truly free, but it is not cheap.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

One may wonder if it is possible to be a good Christian and still be a good American. I believe it is, as long as we keep our priorities straight.
