I believe in Jesus. His is the name I use to describe the loving, present, meaningful Presence of God here with us.

Let’s just get that out of the way.

I believe that the purpose we all look for is found in Him.
I believe that the freedom from shame that we look for is found in Him.
I believe that the meaning behind all of life is found in Him.
I believe that the Oneness with the universe we want is found in Him.
I believe that the order and mind behind science is found in Him.
I believe that the love we seek is found in Him.

I believe Jesus is NOT what anyone tells you He is… He is not what I tell you he is. I know what Jesus is to me today, right now. And tomorrow, that will grow, expand, soften, harden, change shade and nuance, blow up and cover me.

Jesus is beyond definition. It is why the Bible is so infuriating and invigorating.

But there are a few things about Jesus that I can hand you to hold so you can try out the fit in your palm and the weight of His glory in your life… things that tie to real life so that as we learn about Jesus, our lives change and as we live our lives God makes more sense.

Jesus’ power and spirit are constantly available everywhere and at all times to anyone who wants access. Access feels like peace, hope, love.

Jesus uses His power to remove shame, standards of perfection, guilt, and contempt.

Jesus loves you unconditionally and the best way to experience Jesus’ love is to love yourself the way He does.

Jesus’ story involves the goodness of the soul and the body, both.
Jesus – who spends the night before the most important day of his life, caring for the bodies of his friends. Jesus – who touches the people who see themselves as untouchable.

Jesus spent his time preaching spiritual freedom and healing people’s bodies. This is why I do what I do – speaking about faith and bodies. I want to spend my time giving you words of freedom and ways to heal your body and the body of your Love…
