Pastor Scott Casebeer
As a spiritual interpreter, I need to help others find their understanding of God within the Christian tradition. But as a servant leader, I must be open to the plurality within the theological discussion by providing a safe space for people to bring their questions. I am called to help others theologically frame their world, but I should never dictate what they should believe. This means working with people where they are at, in communities that are far from perfect but that continue to struggle to find out how they can best love God and neighbor. We are all learning, we are all in process, journeying together towards a better understanding of how God is acting in our lives and the world. My task is not to change people; only God can do that. My charge as a leader of the church is to introduce people to God and to walk with them in their doubts and their pain, continually reminding them that they are loved by One who embodies all love.
