Parliament of the World's Religions

The 1893 World Parliament of Religions is the landmark beginning of the modern interfaith movement. Today’s Parliament Convenings are the world’s largest and most inclusive interfaith gathering, with an average attendance of 8,000 participants. I am honored to be speaking at this year's Parliament, with a presentation entitled "Sacred Space, Sacred Time, Sacred Things: Meeting the Holy in Another Dimension."

Events

Worship
Worship Sundays at 9 AM Pacific Time in our Rancho Cucamonga church location. Also available Sunday afternoons on our YouTube channel.
Pastoral Services
As a pastor I am asked to do all kinds of things. Sometimes even the animals need attention! If I can help, please let me know.
Bible Study
We offer Sunday morning Bible studies in person at church at 10:30 AM Pacific. We explore the origins and meanings of these sacred writings. Contact the church office for more information on how to join us.
Special Events
We have a variety of activities at the church every month. We share meals, enjoy fun and laughter, and journey together in faith. These are open to all people and they are safe places to explore and share. Contact the church office for more information on how to join us or to get on our email list."

Writings

Beckoned
In Beckoned, I shared my sometimes difficult lifelong spiritual journey. I hope the book inspires the reader to ask: "How am I beckoned? What do I understand about God, myself, and the church? Am I willing to grow even deeper?"

Check out the book at Amazon in Kindle and paper formats.

Email me if you would like a free list of 75 Beckoned questions, helpful for personal reflection or group book study.

Articles
I am honored to be a contributing author to Living Lutheran Magazine. I've written and published eight articles so far. They have a lot of other great writing, too. Find my articles here.
Column
I will soon have a regular column in Peaceful Living Wellness digital magazine where I will be sharing thoughts related to spirituality and mindfulness. We will link the articles here as they appear.
Presentations
I am available to speak over Zoom and in person on my book, spiritual practices, and interfaith topics. I have previous experience speaking in mosques, synagogues, and Buddhist temples, either with the clergy or laity there, or individually. I have shared with small and large groups at churches and schools. Get in touch and I'll help however I can.
