Meet Lisa

An intro post always seems so formal and I could just blow it off and give you the official spiel* but this site has more of a cozy casual vibe that I hope y'all feel. So, what is there to know about me and why I would want to contribute to the ongoing conversation here at 'A Dynamic and Imperfect Christian'?

First and foremost, I am a Christian, now that simply means that I do believe that Jesus Christ's teachings and belief in Him are the way to the afterlife, or Heaven. Saying you're a Christian can mean many different things to a lot of people, but I am going with the classic definition.

I attend a United Methodist church and have a diverse church going background. I was raised in an Assembly of God church, attended Southern Baptist vacation Bible school in the summers, and when I was thirteen until I graduated high school I attended a United Methodist church for Sunday morning services, and a non-denominational on Sunday nights and Wednesdays. While in college I attended a two different Southern Baptist  churches and after graduation I worshiped with a group of the Religious Society of Friends, aka the Quakers. These days I attend Rose Bud United Methodist church and I am the webmaster.

So to say I am a diverse Christian is right on target. I love to talk about my faith and Christianity in general or the Bible in specific, so feel free to drop me a line through the blog. I love meeting new people and interacting with them online through Facebook, Twitter, or my personal blog

I look forward to the opportunity to hash out just what it means to be a Christian in this era and how that impacts the world.
