Please share what you believe are the key theological/social issues currently facing the church and society, and how they shape your experience in the church: *The restoration of all of God’s creation—The care of God’s physical creation—the call we have to tend to this earth in sustainable and responsible ways; the necessary and hard work of understanding and overcoming white supremacy and racism which manifests in the foundation of this country and church and how they have informed our laws, bylaws, and daily interactions; the full inclusion and celebration of those who identify as Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Asexual, Intersexual, Pansexual or who claim no label, in the church and in our daily lives.

Please indicate why you want to represent National Capital Presbytery at the General Assembly: I believe that I have a voice that is representative of the views of many in National Capital Presbytery, and it is my responsibility to speak truth, in love, to power. I also believe that I know when to use it and when to yield to those whose voices need to be uplifted but are often ignored. I believe I can represent NCP in a holy and respectable manner.
