You know my mantra calling for women to play a greater role in our society. It is this type of thinking in the article that so overwhelms society and produces an unlevel playing field. Here you have the President of Harvard University and a top-tier economist making a statement that women are not capable of excelling (in comparison to men) in the math and science fields. I sure don’t want my two girls hearing such non-sense. I want them to have every opportunity to be whatever God has created them to be. No longer is it acceptable to pigeon-hole people based on gender, race, socio-economic background or nationality. Jesus came to set us free. Free from selfish desires, free from eternal death, and free to live life to the fullest degree. Any reduction of this freedom by humanity is, in my opinion, straying from God’s intention.

I'm one of the pastors at First United Methodist Church in Lexington, Kentucky where I've served for the past twelve years. My wife Susan and I have three children: Madelyn, Marshall and Melisa. When we aren't attending a ballet or ballgame somewhere, you can find us...oh who am I kidding... this season of life always finds us at a ballgame (Marshall and Melisa) or a ballet (somewhat less now that Madelyn is living in Anapolis, MD.). The sub-title of this blog is "Grace is no accident" which happens to be the defining reality of my life. God's grace (gift) is the reason we have breath in our lungs and hope in our hearts.
