Parliament of the World's Religions

The 1893 Parliament of the World’s 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 was honored to speak at the 2021 Parliament, with a presentation entitled "Sacred Space, Sacred Time, Sacred Things: Meeting the Holy in Another Dimension." I am particularly excited to attend the 2023 Parliament in Chicago, the city of the Parliament's birth, to present "Healing Religions' Harms."


Worship Sundays at 10 AM Pacific Time in our Riverside 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.
Lifelong Learning
Throughout the year, I offer a variety of classes to help people grow in faith and wisdom. We explore ancient biblical texts to modern spirituality. 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."


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.

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.
I have a regular column in Peaceful Living Wellness digital magazine where I share thoughts related to spirituality and mindfulness. You can find my articles here.
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.
