I am a 56 year old ordained ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) pastor, living and serving God in rural Ohio. I wasn’t raised in the church, and struggled with my call for over 20 years before being ordained seven years ago, in November 2006. I am religious and spiritual; the understandings are not a dichotomy to me.
This blog will be my effort to explore both the religious and the spiritual.
One more comment…the thoughts I express are strictly my own. I am not speaking on behalf of the ELCA, or the congregation where I serve.
