“I took a crooked path through life and to the pulpit. The grace that I experienced on that journey, God’s grace, connects me spiritually to Wesleyan Theology and the United Methodist Church. I believe that we each seek to tell our own stories, but it is only after realizing where our stories intersect which God’s story that we come to know who we truly are – the person God created us to be. Lisa and I are blessed and excited to serve alongside the people of Arlington Methodist Church.”

“So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!”

2 Corinthians 5:17 (NRSV)

“The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighborhood. We saw the glory with our own eyes, the one-of-a-kind glory, like Father, like Son, Generous inside and out, true from start to finish.”

John 1:14 (The Message)
