I am a "born-again" Christian, married and blessed with 2 children: a son and daughter who are both adults now.
In 1986, I was ordained by the Irish Channel Christian Fellowship, a non-denominational church in the inner city of New Orleans. There I served approximately 2 years as full-time youth pastor, and many more as a volunteer minister. While no longer involved with youth work, I still preach often and participate in many other ministry related activities.
My educational background includes a degree in Management and Communication from Concordia University Wisconsin, and 2 years of part time studies at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.
I love to read and discuss theology, and enjoy looking for new (or undiscovered) perspectives of the Bible. I also enjoy humor and satire. In fact, I believe some of the best theology ever written is in the form of humor, satire, and fantasy, as in many of the works of my favorite author, C. S. Lewis.
Another pastime of mine is to observe the activities and habits of church going people. It is easy for me to find humor there. While I am very serious about God and the Christian faith, I often find the people of God (including myself) hilarious. Because of my combined love of theology and humor, I have written many satirical pieces about religious subjects. It is a method of helping me make sense of the otherwise absurd aspects of life.
