This election cycle has been hard for me. I suspect I am not alone in this feeling. It has caused emotional and spiritual distress. Feelings of depression, disappointment, disgust and anger have become common this last year or so. And in the midst of it I have tried to remind myself of the great freedom and privilege I have of living in this country. Now that the election is over and we will be challenged to live with the decision that has been made it might do us some good to look at the many blessings we enjoy despite our disagreements and disappointments.
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.
