Hello, Cathy here, welcome to my world. I love Jesus! One of the best things in the world is to see his transforming power at work in people! I am married to Neil, and we have a beautiful chocolate lab named…Herschel
I am currently pastoring two churches — one urban and one rural. Yes, it seems a bit schizophrenic at times! New Covenant United Methodist Church in Wichita, Kansas, is a missional church with an awesome vision for ministry in the Delano District, an urban area of Wichita. If you are looking for a church where the people outside the four walls matter as much as the people inside, come check us out! http://www.newcovum.org I also pastor at Norwich United Methodist Church in Norwich Kansas, a small rural town about 30 miles southwest of Wichita. It, too, is an awesome church where the people genuinely care for one another. I truly have the best of both worlds!
One important element of my theology is the concept of “shalom.” While it does mean peace, it means so much more. Theologian Alvin Plantinga defines shalom as “the way things ought to be.” I really like that…someday when Jesus comes back that will be realized once again…until then I work to bring about shalom in my little corner of the world, sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
