Gratitude 1/23

Yesterday I had the honor of preaching at a friend’s installation as pastor of Shepherd of the Valley in Simi Valley. I talked a bit about heroes…those who impact our lives as well as our own opportunities to be heroes for others. Who have been your heroes? How have they impacted and inspired you?

Today I am personally thankful for: the women (and men) who battled the sexism that once made it impossible for women to serve as God has called them, I serve as a pastor because of them; the pastors and other leaders of New City Parish who allowed me to experience the vibrancy and richness of the inner city; and the millions of Americans who are making it clear that the current president and congress do not have a mandate.

I'm a pastor at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church and Preschool in Oxnard, CA. Our church is small yet powerful, our preschool is amazing, and I am so happy to be a part of it all. I run and a coach other runners. Join me as I share thoughts on life in the church and along the roadways and running trails.
