Who is Aubry?
For instance, I totally believe that speaking in tongues is still legitimate. I’m a closet liturgical who loves fixed-hour prayer and observes Lent and Advent and other often-ignored holy days in the Christian year. So, rather than assigning labels and assuming beliefs, I’m a big proponent of just asking people what exactly is it that they believe, and why. I love learning about different belief sets and cultures and traditions, because I think we all have something to learn from one another on this faith-journey (so stop lurking and comment! We need you!).
I’m passionate about the Church moving past the labels and doctrinal in-fighting and uniting for the Mission of God in this world. I want us to flee the stale replicas of Christianity and run full-force into a dynamic, with-God life.
How do we filter our cultural values, our church culture, our national values, our parenting, and ourselves through the truth of Scripture? What does it mean to be a Jesus-follower as a parent, a spouse, a friend, or as part of the Body of Christ? Can Jesus use things like potty-training to form us? God’s grace is abundant and everywhere, and I think we can find it together.
I’m from Arkansas, but I do wear shoes. I graduated from Ouachita (WASH-uh-tah) Baptist University with degrees in Biology and Christian Studies. I’m married to Brady, and I spend my days wrangling my three kids: Breckon (4), Kian (2), and Eden (5 months). We’ve taken our traveling circus all over this country in pursuit of jobs, seminary, and ministry, and now we’re preparing to go overseas in 2014.
I used to blog here, but I felt it was time for a change. You can still access all my posts from that site (but do so graciously – I’m a work in progress, you see).
I’m honored that you’re here, and hope you’ll join in the conversation as we figure this Jesus-life out.
