Living and learning how to be a person of faith in today’s world can feel a lot like figuring out Roller Derby.

This site is a place for reflections, sermons, and thoughts on turning left, turning around, and turning the world.

I serve as the Pastor at Central Lutheran Church in NE Portland, Oregon. Central is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and is proud to be a Reconciling in Christ (RIC) community. I can also be found skating (where folks call me FeeNix, or Nix for short) with the Wrecker program of Rose City Rollers.



Telling the story

As I work towards my Doctorate of Ministry in Preaching through Portland Seminary, I am excited to have written a collection of sermons that is now available!

Where Faith & Derby Intersect

Many of us talk about how Roller Derby saved our soul. This is a place where those stories - full of blood, sweat, tears, and community - can be gathered. In the months to come there will be more information about participating in this project.
