About this blog
I am an ordained elder-in-full-connection in the United Methodist Church. I currently serve as Associate Pastor at the Alpharetta First United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, Georgia. I lead our church’s contemporary worship service. This blog often deals with themes and ideas related to my preaching and other church work. I enjoy thinking through questions that emerge at the intersection of Christian faith and culture. Since culture—any culture—makes its own quasi-religious claims that will never align nicely with God’s kingdom, the tone of my entries often have a Christian-apologetic slant. Thus the subtitle of my blog, from Mark 9:24: “I believe; help my unbelief.” I want to help.
Just from a practical perspective, this blog is a nice archive of my sermons. The blog’s search engine is very handy—even to me! Enjoy!
