I am a ponderer by nature, and freely mix the spiritual and the pragmatic but always guided by the wisdom of the Spirit as sent by the Lord God and communicated through scripture. I am not sure how to describe my spiritual orientation. Part Anabaptist - that is where my roots are. But I have journeyed a long way from the church of my childhood. My faith life is a potpourri of most Christian denominations, with a little Judaism thrown in. My passion is to reach out to people where they are, wherever they are, and support them in their life and in this world, while readying them for the life and world to come.
