I’m not one to gravitate towards labels. I am a follower and lover of Jesus and believe in the mystery of the trinity. Mystery, actually, would be a wonderful way to describe what I believe. I believe in the grand mystery of God who is so big and expansive and loving that the entire cosmos was created through, while also caring so deeply and intimately about each and every single person, animal and plant that has been and will ever be created. This Great Mystery is is revealed in the two great books- nature and scripture. I believe God’s fingerprints are everywhere and that God is continually drawing us in deeper towards his love.
I find myself within the Christian tradition but most comfortable in the expressions of Ignatian Spirituality, the thought-led and connection-woven Mystics, and, most recently, the grounding traditions and affirming practices of the Lutheran tradition. I fully understand that labeling may hinder connection to others and that labels never fully capture a fluid relationship with God that is continually growing, expanding, and getting deeper. I am drawn to continual connection with the Divine and holding space for others to notice and explore their own experience of God, no matter where they find themselves on their faith journey.
