I am a really big science fiction and fantasy geek. I really love all of those stories about wizards, knights, orcs, dragons and all the rest of it. Sometimes legend and fantasy can call us to our better selves. In times like now when it seems that everyone prefers the lowest and most base ways of treating each other and the world around us I like to escape into a world where there are higher and nobler ideas and ideals. I want to be inspired to be my best. So I ask myself, “Is there a paladin in you?”. I hope I can answer yes.
Rev. Adam is a regular in our pulpit. Ordained in 1992 at his childhood church, Maple Lawn Christian Church (Joliet, IL), Rev Adam has always tried to be ready to share his ministerial gifts and abilities whenever and wherever they are called for. He has served as both a volunteer and paid minister in both churches and parachurch organizations. From his work with the homeless at the Inner Cities Ministries (Springfield IL) thru his time as assistant minister at First UU Church of Houston he has been shaped by the progressive revelation and discovery of the Divine he understands as God. After a much needed break from formal ministry to do some intense work on becoming a healthier person he likes to think that mentally emotionally physically and spiritually he is more whole now than he has ever been.
