“I’m a perfectly free lord of all, subject to none.”♠
As a baptized child of God, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.♣ One of those things happens to be: Play Dungeons & Dragons like a boss.
“I’m a perfectly dutiful servant of all, subject to all.”♠
As a baptized child of God, I’m also called to follow Jesus, to carry the good news of God’s Kingdom to the ends of the Earth, and to participate in God’s mission of love for the entire cosmos. One of the ways I do that happens to be: Serve the Church as a congregational pastor.♥
This blog is about how these things meet.
- Where my lordship meets my servanthood.
- Where my identity and God-given ability meets my activity in God’s proclaimed mission.
- Where Pastor meets Dungeon Master, and following Jesus meets tabletop fantasy role playing.
I have a hunch that these things have more to say to one another than you might think.
