About Dennis Sanders
I grew up in Flint, Michigan which if you know about Flint, means I love cars and transportation. I have a passion for writing which has led me to be a communications professional for nearly 20 years. I'm also an ordained minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). From 2008 until 2013 I was the Associate Pastor at First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Minneapolis. Since 2013, I've been the Pastor at First Christian Church in Roseville, MN. I live in Minneapolis with my wonderful husband, Daniel.
Why the Blog?
From about 2002 to maybe 2015, I was an avid blogger on various topics ranging from religion to politics, LGBTQ issues, race, and racial reconciliation, and autism/ADHD/neurodiversity.
I moved on to writing on Medium and Substack, but I missed the immediacy of blogging. I was also feeling the growing awareness of having a place to get my thoughts out that could be refined over time to appear on Medium or Substack or even somewhere else.
I thought about going back to my blog on WordPress, but it never felt right. It felt a lot like that ship had past and I needed to start anew. I tried using my Tumblr page, but Tumblr isn't really the best place for this either. So, this is what this blog is all about: a place for first drafts. Some of these articles will graduate to other places, some will never move from this domain.
I might include some episodes of my podcast, Church and Main as well.
So, welcome as I try to work out my thoughts on this here website!
