My name is Christine Dunn, although I answer mostly to Mom or Pastor. I am a Lutheran pastor for an amazing group of Jesus’ disciples just outside Washington DC AND a mom to 3 amazing young men and 1 rambunctious 2 year old girl. My husband and I hold onto life by our fingernails, but we relish the ride. I blog here about family and faith and frustrations….That thing we call ‘life’. I am an avid runner, a lover of interesting books and deep conversation, a very amateur writer, and also a lover of chocolate. I also love theology (which is weird, I know), but I don’t love theology more than Jesus. This blog is hardly ever profound, but it is real. As a pastor and as a mom, I find ‘real’ to be more helpful in my journey with Jesus than crossing all the t’s and dotting all the i’s.
