Ok, I have another quick thing I wanted to share about the 2012 session of the Missouri Annual Conference. (Really, I should be packing boxes so we can get moved already!) I just want to mention the clergy session on the first afternoon. The Bishop (Robert Schnase) lifted up an article by Heitzenrater that talked about Charles and John Wesley. At one point Bishop mentioned that the number one characteristic sought in a preacher/circuit-rider/pastor was that they were a "real" Christian, they know God as a pardoning God and have a relationship with God. This seems obvious, DUH! But too often we forget that our number one task is lined out in Matthew 6:33 "Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness..."
I am a Software Developer, a career shift made in 2018. So far, I have experience with C# .Net and Angular. I continue to let curiosity lead me into learning new technologies. I plan to share what I learn along the way about technology and personal/career life. Previously, my vocation was United Methodist pastor. So in addition to coding, I'll share about theology, the Church and The Bible. I also enjoy running, music, and I'm a deeply committed father and husband. Maybe my experiences will help you. I know it helps me to share.
