Jonathan Holmes

 

 

Jonathan kills people…

..with the Law; but does so to bring them back to life with the Gospel. He’s baptized child of God. He’s fondly married to his beautiful wife, Amy, and a proud father of a toddling boy, Otto. He’s joyfully fulfills his vocation as the Associate Pastor for Trinity Lutheran Church and School in Springfield, IL. He struggles sinning in thought, word, and deed, but knows those struggles and sins have been conquered by Christ, which make him a stronger man. He wants to give this same Christ to all those – which is pretty much everyone he meets or knows – who suffer in a fallen, broken world, by withholding the sins of unrepentant morons and foolishly forgiving the sins of downtrodden, burdened consciences. This means He will say and do whatever needs to be said or done to share this Good News with those broken in body, mind, and soul – even cuss up a storm if necessary. So @!#$ all bureaucracy that’s gets in the way. He also likes drinking bourbon or Manhattans on the back patio on a nice day or evening, or with his buddies at the bar, or pretty much anywhere for that matter. He contributes pretty much whatever He wants concerning theology.
