Parson's Porch & Company

Turning Words into Books & Books into Bread since 2004

Parson's Porch & Book Publishing is a book publishing company with a double focus.  We focus on the needs of creative writers who need a professional publisher to turn their words into books, & we also focus on the needs of others by turning their books into bread by sharing our profits with those who are homeless and displaced by meeting their basic needs of food, clothing, shelter and safety.

Total Depravity Decently & In Order

16.95

Truth be told, I don’t really know why I’m a pastor. Let’s face it, on paper, I wouldn’t consider myself the ideal candidate. I don’t exactly crave the spotlight. I’m definitely not an extrovert. Any ability I have to initiate conversation has been carefully and awkwardly cultivated over the last so many years through a process of trial and error. As it happens, I maxed out the “Thinking” scale of my Myers-Briggs personality inventory, so I admit how certain feelings and attitudes can sometimes escape my notice. I’m not the most spiritual person in the world. I’m not part of some multigenerational family legacy. (I think I may have had a great-great-grandfather who was a pastor, but I’m sure he was Baptist!) I’m not particularly well-connected within the Presbyterian Church (USA), nor do I serve a large, influential congregation. Although I find polity fascinating, I have little threshold for church politics. Why someone like myself would publicly and professionally invite the scrutiny of others, I have no earthly idea.
