Hi, I'm Brett!
I know what it feels like for the church to say, "You have to be just like us to be a part of us."
In fact, I know what it feels like to say that to another human being. Like many Christians, I was taught the lie that the Kingdom of God required you to have all your shit together before you could be considered a "Christian". Yet, when my life started to take a turn towards grey, rather than being black and white, I decided it was time to dig deeper into this narrative of who is in and who is out. It is my observation (and the observation of those who have gone before me) that God is present in all of life's shit. Jesus meets us in the mess and takes on flesh. AND we don't have to be perfect to belong in the mystery of God. God is present in all of our lives. I create resources and share experiences to help others see the world from their neighbor's point of view so that we can become fully human together -- reflecting that of the life of Christ.
I am a student at Claremont School of Theology studying a Masters of Theological Studies. Upon completion of my theology degree, I will pursue a M.A. in Marriage and Couples Therapy.
Will you join me at the table? You belong here.
