Ever heard of a Pastoral Theologian?

Pastors help people in their faith journeys while theologians are people that think deeply about God.

I am something between those two and with just enough desire to stir the pot to make it all interesting.

You and your journey are what are most interesting to me, and I thoroughly enjoy mining the best of the best to help respond to the faith and life questions you are looking to live into.
