Our church ain't no country club, and ain't no intellectual secret society, and ain't no navel gazing hum-didy-dum cult. It's an intentionally diverse congregation made up of people who seek to lead meaningful lives, and to build a just and sustainable world. So when you come to me, the elected leader of this historic congregation, come not to expect that some passive clergyman will coddle you to the point of complacency. Come to me as your PST: your Personal Spiritual Trainer."
