Real Faith ~ Real World
I believe that in Jesus Christ God has offered the healing balm of salvation to all creation. This salvation is more than simply an event or experience to look forward to in the future. It’s the radical healing of all creation – humans and the entire universe – right now, and in the age to come. This is tremendously good news; and it’s news all Christ followers can proclaim with joy and boldness.
This is the place where I explore what it means to live into that good news – to nurture the real faith within us and connect it tightly to the real world beyond us. I hope you’ll join me on this journey of nurture and connection so that together we might embrace faith more fully, proclaim it more authentically, and share it with greater grace and love.

There is not political unity within the various Wesleyan Methodist denominations across the United States. On election day, many nonpartisan prayer vigils and communion services were held in churches across the country. Some Methodist Wesleyan leaders led prayer from the Francis Asbury statue in Washington, D.C. As Americans move forward, it remains to be seen how the coming months and years will unfold; likewise, the full consequences of this election are as yet unknown.

As WME works to encourage and empower young leaders in the Wesleyan family, I often wonder what would have happened without the generosity of that anonymous gift giver. What would the kingdom have lost had those two young people not encountered Jesus in Kenya and Hong Kong?
