As we begin Pride Month, we witness to the divine origins of creation in all its wondrous diversity. The Gospel of John proclaims that not one thing came into being apart from the Son, that every human being is therefore a precious gift from God. We believe that no human being exists apart from God’s loving, creating hand. While many voices are raised in opposition to and condemnation of LGBTQIA+ people, we affirm the personhood of each individual, complete with and in their gender and sexual identity. We especially witness to the truth of trans individuals of all ages and affirm their right to live in the fullest expression of who God created them to be: one of the many and beautiful manifestation of divine imagination and will. We are committed to being a safe place for LGBTQIA+ persons. You are seen; you are loved; you are affirmed.

Grace and peace to you! Primarily, this podcast will feature sermons preached at First Presbyterian Church of Milledgeville, Georgia. I firmly believe that the Bible is relevant to our everyday lives in 21st century US, and I seek to connect Scripture with real-life applications. My preaching is progressive and socially minded, and often speaks to the big issues of our day. Occasionally, I may also include mini-sermons, reflections, or random musings. Thanks for listening!
