How do you feel about raisins?

Raisins are zombie grapes. No really, look at them. 

What song is in your head right now?

The song currently in my head is "Lovely Ladies" from Les Misérables.

What's your passion?

My passion is hearing people's stories, especially in the context of faith and theology in order to build bridges between people groups who disagree on such matters. It also operates in the context of building bridges between denominations of Christianity in order to form a Church that is safer for people who question and doubt and at the same time much more unified or ecumenical. 

What's something about yourself I couldn't find out by stalking your Facebook page?

That I secretly wish I was a ginger. :D 

What are your hopes and dreams for RISE?

A difficult question, this. My hopes and dreams for RISE would be that it would remain a faith community dedicated to reaching out the community with hope and love. If anything, my primary hope/dream would be that the people of RISE become even more passionate about this.
