There was a time when I believed that God could not love me because I was gay. Today, I am proud to be at a seminary which is preparing me to share the message that God loves each and every one of us as we are.
I am a bridge builder who reaches across theological, geographical, and cultural divides to relate to people and pastors in many different kinds of situations, always bringing people closer to each other and closer to God. I am someone who listens deeply and responds out of a recognition of God’s giftedness in each and every person before me. I am someone who cares widely and looks for ways to be attentive to God’s ever-abundant grace in our midst.
