Robin and Patch: Living God’s Calling to the End 

Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it. –  Matthew 10:39

“I wanted to become a doctor so that I could serve others and because of that I’ve lost everything, but I’ve also gained everything.” Patch Adams

What is the thing that drives you? The thing that calls from deep within and resonates beyond you? What has God called you to do in this world? As the Body of Christ – hands, feet, hearts, minds – we are called to serve one another. We are called to bring joy into this world to improve the quality of life in the people around us. Patch said that everyone is a doctor, here we say everyone is a minister. One may have a lab coat, a mic, or a stole, but we are all called to serve all the way until the end…

My personal mission is to translate the life and teachings of Jesus to the next generation of peace and justice seekers in and around Burlington Vermont. I’m always up for a friendly argument, a free hug, or to be available as a compassionate ear or shoulder to cry upon. I have an insatiable curiosity for ideas and love to talk about theology, religion, politics, science, or whatever is on your mind. My current passion is about peeling back the centuries of church tradition in order to find the root of our faith in the teachings and ministries of Jesus so that it can be put into practice. After fifteen years of professional ministry with young people I still love watching a newly empowered Child of God set out to change the world!
