In the preface to his standard sermons, John Wesley wrote these words:
I am a creature of a day, passing through life as an arrow through the air. I am a spirit come from God, and returning to God: Just hovering over the great gulf; till, a few moments hence, I am no more seen; I drop into an unchangeable eternity!
I am a 45-year-old bi-vocational United Methodist pastor who is still very much learning what it means to claim John Wesley as a source of wisdom and guidance in spiritual matters. This blog is a place where I write about Wesleyan theology, being a United Methodist pastor, and the odd topic or two that sometimes intrude on my mind.
The personal stuff: I am a part-time local pastor serving Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church and Erie UMC. I am also a participant in the Indiana Conference’s Wesleyan ConneXion. I teach business communication at Indiana University in the Kelley School of Business.
My wife, Lisa, and I have been married 24 years. Luc, 9, lives with us. Zach, 23, is a graduate of American University and working in campaign politics. JillAnn, 19, is at Hendrix College.
