    Jeane, obviously I love so many people in the Churches of Christ, and it always will be my “home” spiritually. For reasons too long and complex to explain here, I have attended the Episcopal Church since 2006. I’m still doing work for ACU and quite involved with C of C endeavors, but I haven’t been in ministry since I started working at Pepperdine in 2006.
