Hello! Thanks for visiting. I hope there’s something useful here for you here.
I’m a husband, and father of six. My wife Jennifer and I have made our home in Corvallis, Oregon for nearly 20 years. Our six children range in age from 15 down to 3. In every area of life it feels like we are on a journey of discovery . I like to mull things over, and find that I benefit from thinking out loud. Hence, this blog.
I am, as I mentioned in one of my posts, an organic church proponent, transportation nerd, professional engineer, bike shop owner, cargo bike enthusiast, cycling instructor, wanna be amateur sociologist, and struggling-to-advance disciple-maker. Jesus is the point.
I believe that in a real sense, the church is where you are, if you are a follower of Jesus Christ. I don’t mean it in a comprehensive sense. I, alone, am not the church, but I am the manifestation of the church at my bike shop. As I work, and as I interact with those who come through my door, I have the opportunity to reflect the reality of the Kingdom and its King. Even better, as I walk along with other believers – in my shop or in my neighborhood or wherever – we together manifest the church.
Read, comment, share. I enjoy dialog, so feel free to push back or ask questions.
PS This is a non-thuggy picture of me.
