I am a community college speech instructor in the suburbs of Houston. I’m much more interested in interpersonal communication than in public speaking, although I’ve delivered a lot of speeches over the course of my life.
In addition to that, I’m a former minister and a husband. I’m also a father of three–girl, boy, girl–whose concerns and questions force me to apply the abstract theological questions I love to their experience of daily life. This blog is where I try to capture the things that roll into my head before they roll back out.
My doctoral thesis was about intergenerational Christian spiritual formation, and I love to help adults and children draw closer to God together. If you’re interested in a workshop on spiritual formation in the church and home, please contact me! If you’d like someone to come fill in one Sunday while your preacher is on vacation, I’d be happy to do that, too. For that matter, if you are looking for a new minister and think we might be compatible, drop me a line. I’m on an extended hiatus from ministry, but I’d jump back in for the right congregation.
If you’d like to reach me, it helps to know that I use gmail, and that my address is myfirstname.mylastname.
