“Jesus is a fascinating being to follow–one who hangs out with outcasts, speaks the truth in love, pushes for change, and teaches us a kind of compassion we can only strive to achieve in our communities.

Jesus has a heart that breaks with the lonely and broken, hands that reach out and heal the deserving and undeserving, and an endless capacity for discovering what God has at work in the creative existence of community.

That is the Jesus I preach and the Jesus I seek to embody in my life of ministry.”
