About Me

CT July 2015 headshotMy name is Christy Thomas, and I am a retired Elder in The United Methodist Church.  I have written extensively on church matters and particularly on matters relating to The United Methodist Church. My writings on the religious world can be found here.

I like to think, to ask questions, to make connections, and to read as widely as possible.  I believe that God holds the world together and is interested in redeeming all of creation, not just a few selected people who have managed to say exactly the correct words or believe in a certain set pattern.  Yet, I am also utterly convinced that Jesus is the way, the truth and the life–and this way, truth and life is the only way we actually do find the fullness of God.

I also find myself, as I am getting older and perhaps wiser, more and more delighted in ambiguity and mystery and less and less tolerant of those who call themselves people of God and then use that self-description as a way to abuse others.
