About Rev. Robert Glenn Johnson
“I have gone through intellectual and faith crises, where everything fell apart. But through each stage of my faith journey, Jesus continued to make sense of it all.
Jesus adds meaning to my experience and the world. Jesus bridges divides and continuously gives me a new perspective. Jesus is the place where I find my bearings and the place where I can evolve past the boundaries and limitations that I put on myself and others.
I always come back to him. He is the one person I have found to be trustworthy in the chaos.”
