"I AM IN THE THROES OF BEING BORN AGAIN...

I AM... Beloved and Broken. Lost and Found. Saint and Sinner. Husband. Father. Crappy Friend. Seized by the Great Affection. Trying my best to sit at the foot of the bush that is always burning and learning to see the world with open eyes.

I AM... not big on labels but I guess you could say that I am an eclectic Christian who falls somewhere into being a post-evangelical, semi-liturgical, neo-sacramental, anbapticostal theological mutt! Or better yet, I AM just a guy attempt to follow Jesus well.

I AM... A doubt filled Believer. Depression haunted but overcoming. Lover of Heavy Metal Music and Taylor Swift. Straight Edge until the day I die. Aspiring professional tree Huger. Coffee Shop barista. Lover of Books, Green Apple Jones Soda, hiking, and Star Wars.

I AM... Skeptical but forever hoping. Stumbling through the wilderness all the while being born again, again (and again, and again, and again.)

I AM the curator of Exile Liturgy, host of the #LessonsFromDeadGuys podcast and I also currently serve as Director of Youth at Epworth UMC in Huntsville, Alabama.

I AM passionate about seeing people transformed by the Gospel of Jesus and seeing the Kingdom of God come on earth, as it is in heaven.

I AM from the backwoods of Alabama and am married to the most wonderful human being I have ever known. Together we have two wild little boys named Judah and Silas.

...BEAR WITH ME, MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS. LET ME SEE THE PURE LIGHT; WHEN I AM THERE, I SHALL BE TRULY A HUMAN BEING AT LAST."

- St. Ignatius of Antioch
