About Jeff

Hi there.  My name is Jeff, and I am honored to be one of your hosts here at RT

Let me start with what’s obvious (to me, at least).  I don’t have much of a clue.  I used to.  I used to know a hell of a lot.  Now, though, I’d call myself a beginner.

I love to learn.  Back in 2008 I completed a two-year certification course in spiritual formation and direction.  I am now enrolled in the Living School.  I’ve also been drawn to UCSD Extension for almost two decades.

My spiritual roots are Christian and even now I help lead various house churches.  I’m not boxed off though.  I consider myself ecumenical, meaning that I value, embrace and learn from all Christian denominations.  I also consider myself interfaith, meaning that I respect and gain from all traditions.  It didn’t used to be this way.  I used to know everyone else was wrong.  They were “lost”.  Then one day after 4 decades of earnest belief, I discovered that I too was lost.  This forced my eyes open in a most painful way.

I live in San Diego along with my wife of 20 years.  She’s the best kind of fireball, and I wouldn’t be me without her.  Many other wonderful folks have influenced me, including Richard Rohr, Eugene Peterson, Arthur Burk, and John Eldredge.

Much peace to you.
