ELCA Pastor, Podcaster, Father of two

Matthew is a recovering evangelical who opens up his bible bruises with wonder, curiosity, and a fair amount of irreverence. He is a pastor at St. Andrew Lutheran Church in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. Matthew and his wife are consistently bossed around by two daughters who know exactly what they want.
