I am last year Princeton Seminary in their Dual (MDiv/MA) program. I earned my BA in History emphasizing in religion and global studies at Drury University (the best university you’ve never heard of). I am a member of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and have been certified ready to receive a call.
On the fun side, I play guitar, write new lyrics for old tunes, watch almost anything Star Trek, write novels (for fun, none are published), on occasion DM a DnD game, and watch sitcoms with friends. I take part in the life of the First Presbyterian Church of Second Life (an online faith community) that is really cool. I love non-fiction like reading books like Diana Butler Bass’ A People’s History of Christianity and fun fiction like all the Harry Potter books.
“Church is no longer membership in an institution, but a journey toward the possibility of a relationship with people, a community, a tradition, a sacred space, and, of course, God.” -Diana Butler Bass (Christianity After Religion)
I am a Millennial and believe my generation is not the future. We are part of the present. Well, we will be part of the future when the future comes around, too. Let’s build a better future together.
I am a co-facilitator for Dream PC(USA), an open-ended prayer-based group of church leaders supporting each other as we dream new dreams and old dreams in new ways.
My first publication is “Loans for Life” in Unbound: an Interactive Journal of Christian Social Justice in the September 2011 issue.
I was also a guest blogger for Bruce Reyes-Chow, “A Letter to the Church About Young Adults and Worship” (Jan 2012).
My article “Numbering My Worries” in Unbound (May 2012).
I also have a reflection published in the 2013 Presbyterian Mission Yearbook for Christ the King Sunday.
