Software Developer, part-time pastor, and I raise chickens. Who can't love a chicken?

For Christianity.stackexchange.com, my religious background:

  • Grew up in a Protestant, evangelical, nondenominational "Bible Church" (-1990)
  • earned a M.Div at a Baptist Seminary (2008) and pastored a very small Baptist church (2004 - 2008)
  • Served in an Episcopal Church, and yes I did that site. (2008 - 2013)
  • Back to a Baptist church that has a true passion for breaking down the barriers of church so as to focus on the original mission of the church - namely to bring Jesus to a dying world.

The Whole Trinity is important! We've been saying that for, oh,1619 years now!!

comment Why can't the laity preach a homily, and can a lay person ever preach?
To clarify for all involved, this is NOT the case in most Protestant denominations, but since this question has the catholicism tag, it is safe to assume OP is asking about the Roman Catholic doctrine only. PLEASE STAY ON TOPIC EVERYONE!!!

comment Is the Old Testament a Jewish book?
Welcome to C.SE! When you get the chance, please take our tour and find out how we are different than other sites. In particular, and this may sound strange, but we don't do opinion here :) This is an academic site and we are looking for sources of established theology.
