I spent the past four months on sabbatical finishing my Doctor of Ministry dissertation in the Leadership and Spiritual Formation program at George Fox Seminary. It was an exhausting, exhilarating, challenging, growthful experience that I enjoyed deeply – and am glad to have behind me!
Finishing this project, however, left me little brain bandwidth to maintain this site. But now I’m back, and I will start posting twice weekly reflections on some of the leadership and ministry themes from my DMin work, as well as sermon thoughts for those weeks I’m in the pulpit. I’ve got lots of thoughts about being a missional Lutheran rumbling around in my head, and I’m interested to know what is percolating in your spirit as well.
