The genesis journey of a young pastor-- from the waters of flood and baptism to the sharing of sacred goodbyes and Eucharist--finding the holiness of human life, and the heart to love, believe, and serve.
Join the young pastor on his very human journey to serve and seek Christ, to find love and community, and to reach always, for the light.
The young pastor's beginning. From the love within family and the knowingness of home, to the cruelties of bullies and the anguish of depression, a kid with a calling survives. From the halls of junior high and high school, to the corridors of Duke, a coming-of-age journey with the discovery of self-worth, faith, and hope, that is both particular and universal in scope.

This Pastor soars to grand heights even as it journeys close to the soil of parish life, and gets dusty, sometimes muddy feet walking the dirt road human experience. This narrative returns to the places and people familiar to readers of Kanode’s first book, A Young Pastor, while exploring new places and deeper dimensions of Christian belief and the messiness of personhood. Using the gospel paradigm of life withering into death blossoming into resurrection, This Pastor tells a joyful, painful, despairing, hopeful story as this pastor, Jeffrey Kanode tells his story that is at once authentic and parabolic in sensibility; individual and universal in scope, with both conversational and poetic prose.
