Not that I have nothing to say, but I’m not yet ready to say it. Just popping in to make note that I’ve finally cleared up the domain name issue with this blog. Imago-Dei-Tulsa may still get you here, but now you can shoot straight over to AccidentalLutheran.com for all the poop that’s fit to scoop.

I'm a baker's dozen years or so into this "professional ministry gig" (if you count seminary), and still kind of wonder how the heck I got here. I'm currently serving as pastor of a fantastic, wonderful, faithful congregation in Cape Coral, Florida. That's a story in itself. I'm also serving as honorary pastor/chaplain for the German American Social Club in Cape Coral and for the Evangelische Kirke/German Ministry, Inc. in town. Recently moved from pastoring a weirdly wonderful congregation in Tulsa, OK. That first call ran from 2012 to 2021. All three congregations are many literal and cultural miles removed from my home in one of Detroit's first-ring suburbs. As a holdover from a previous life, I'm a recovering museum nerd, having somewhat accidentally chosen living history museum work as my first career post-military. Temperamentally, I'm an INFP (according to the MBTI) and a Self-Preserving 4-6-8 Enneagram Tri-type, but that 6 might actually be more dominant than the 4. Still working all that out. As is my family: wife, 2 lovely children (a boy and a girl), a Yellow Lab named Sunny, and 3 domestic shorthair cats (Otto, Oscar, and Miss Juniper Cleopatra Tiana Martin).
