A Quaker Meeting in Camas, WA
You can find his blog at gathering in light.
He was born in Canton, Ohio and is the oldest (and cutest) of nine siblings. His favorite past time when he was a kid was either building robots out of construx or making homemade movies using all his siblings to be various characters in the movies.
He has a BA from Malone College in Bible and Theology, a Master of Arts in Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary and is currently working on his PhD in the School of Intercultural Studies at Fuller. He hopes to one day teach Quaker Theology and Contemporary Culture, while still serving in pastoral ministry.
He loves to write (you can read his sermons here) when he can steal some time. He leads workshops and does speaking engagements on Quaker history and theology, and mission in contemporary culture. He is motivated by God’s heart and care for the disenfranchised in our society.
He has been happily married since 2001 and has three lovely children. Among Wess’ many interests are dancing with his daughters, biking, hiking, watching documentaries and off-beat movies, drinking coffee at cafe piccolo in Camas, and when he can get away, visiting Powell’s bookshop.
Wess is committed to the way of radical love and justice, which was perfectly embodied in Jesus Christ.
