About me

Industry Religion
Occupation Missioner
Location Spokane, WA, United States
Introduction I live, grow, harvest, cook, and write in the Pacific Northwest. I try to balance my daily work as a pastor of a small inner city church with the spiritual and physical sustenance I find in adventures in sustainable food. For me, this includes creative cooking to work around multiple food allergies. I also live with several autoimmune disorders (including rheumatoid arthritis) which limit my strength and stamina, but inspire me to put good, organic food in my body.
Interests God, liturgy, gardening, reading, cooking, the sheep that is lost
Favorite Movies It's a Wonderful Life, The Mission, The Gods Must Be Crazy, Young Frankenstein, Monty Python and the Holy Grail

When your science teacher smashed a frozen rose with a hammer, did you warm the petals to bring them back to life?

I cupped each broken life until my hands bled, until I remembered my breath and thought maybe God could find some use for it beyond me.
