While you can read what I really think about this on page 161 of I Just Wanna Ride or go to the egotistical version on pages 234-235 of my non-best-selling book Fifteen Secrets, here’s a real brief summary for the curious, suspicious, distrusting, and cynical…like me:

Born on March 2, 1952 in Washington, D.C.

Non-distinguished graduate of Wyoming Valley West High School (1970), maxima cum laude (Wow!) graduate of King’s College (1974), Master of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary (1977), and Doctor of Ministry from Drew University (1982).

Lots of studies in Germany, Rome, Geneva, and Israel.

Is this getting impressive or what?

Professor of Homiletics at Nazarene Seminary and Carolina Divinity School.

Pastor of churches since May 8, 1977 ranging in size from just over a 100 to a shade under 3000.

Those last two paragraphs are really important to clergy who are into size and status regardless of what Jesus or Paul said or people figure out sooner than later.

Five non-bestsellers before I Just Wanna Ride which, uh, I think is more important than anything so far that’s come, I think, from Him into my noodle.

Lots of other stuff to impress those impressionable posing clergy; but I’m most proud in a Christian kinda way of being a police chaplain for Belvidere and Boone County (Illinois) and just completing five years as P of a big junior tackle football league.  Of course, my day job is undershepherd of Belvidere’s First Presbyterian Church.

Seriously, it’s about who you are more than what you do or have done.  I’m still working on the first part of that last sentence; meaning I’m just scratching the surface of…
