About

This is me trying to look cool.

Notice how that didn’t work out quite so well.

I’m a husband and a father and a follower of Jesus.

I am not a non-hunter.

I serve God as an Episcopal priest and church planter.

And as a husband and a father.

I would rather watch football than do almost anything else. And I would rather read than watch football.

I married up.

I am the only person I know who watches the “Ask the Editor” videos on the Merriam-Webster website. And yes, I have a favorite.

My favorite authors are J.D. Salinger, Flannery O’Connor and Stephen King.

My deepest joy comes from two very different ways of doing the same thing. I love falling through the page into the story. And I love helping people connect with God.

“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen. Not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.” — C.S. Lewis, “Is Theology Poetry”

    I love how you just put it out there, like the big elephant in the room everyone is looking away from. God calls us to be honest regardless of how unpleasant or ugly it can be. I really liked your article on the Christ Vaccine. You mentioned a small ministry you worked in that created tool(s) for churches to help them grow in their relationship with Christ. Do you think Grace is ready for that type of empowering tool?

      Elizabeth, thanks for the comment. Unfortunately, that ministry I mentioned didn’t make it financially and folded. I’m looking at some other tools that are in development. Hopefully, we’ll have something to work with in the Fall. – jg
