This site is my hobby, and something I'd do even if I wasn't an actual real living pastor. I used to want to change the church and world. The I would have settled for finding my place in it. Today, I want to simply hang out with the person who I genuinely believe is going to get me out of it!
This world has over promised and under delivered. The thing is... so has the church. But God... now there is something I'm going to put my faith in. No to listen to, and see, what he's actually saying to us.
Also: I don't think the terms "Liberal" and "Conservative" are helpful in any way to the Christian discussion. These terms are constantly being defined, and are a big reason for the mess we get ourselves in.
Rather - Are you fully surrendered to Jesus? Or do you still parade around with one foot in each camp - that is trying to figure Jesus out while looking out for yourself and finding your place in this world?
My current assignments are the Merced (English & Spanish) and Mariposa Churches. Merced is in the Californian Central Valley, and Mariposa in the foothills of Yosemite. So it's going to take something pretty drastic to get me to move from here! And it's not just Half Dome! I love my churches.
