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.

comment Can a physically healthy, married couple honor God without having children?
Welcome to C.SE! You've probably noticed that I cut out a chunk of your question. We don't do pastoral advice here (We don't know your situation, and if you're trusting random people on the Internet with it, we need to have a talk!) Still, there was a good kernel of a question in there, so I've taken the liberty of making it more like us. Welcome aboard, and please check out our FAQ when you get the chance.

comment Are Catholics like pagans, in Evangelical vision?
Welcome to C.SE. This answer does a good job of sourcing its answer, and evidencing the claim. The base of the source is a bit narrow (one church), but in reality is a well sourced answer. Welcome! Please be sure to check out our FAQ

comment Who compared the Trinity to a triangle with three right angles?
I don't know who did it first, but Rev. Edwin Abbott's Flatland definitely used geometry as a theological metaphor with some degree of creativity.
