I am a constructive theologian and ethicist who stands within the Reformed Protestant tradition (Calvin, Barth) yet is steeped in liberation theology (Gutierrez, Ruether, Cone). The first theological text I read (at age 15) was Paul Tillich's Systematic Theology (3 volumes-in-one University of Chicago hardbound edition), James H. Cone was my first theology professor, and I once met Iggy Pop in lower Manhattan back in the early 1990s. I strive to be a theological pastor and a pastoral theologian, and here I am guided by the words of Prof. Cone: “If I couldn’t preach it, I wouldn’t write it.”

Holy Week Meditation in the Time of the Pandemic

“Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God as something to be exploited, but emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, being born in human likeness. And being found in human form, he humbled himself and became obedient to the point of death—even death on a cross.”

––Philippians 2:5-8
