Professor, Pastor and Author Bruce H. Joffe, Ph.D., believes that God’s love is experienced transformationally—through compassion shown to others and social justice for all.
With a Christian orientation and doctorate in communication, Pastor Bruce Joffe is ordained by the International Council of Community Churches, the Progressive Christian Alliance, and the Unitarian Emerging Christian Church. He requests time to meet and get to know couples who are planning a marriage before conducting the wedding service.
“You can’t box God up in religion. You can’t box Jesus up in Christianity. You can’t box church up in a building. You can’t box faith up in a set of beliefs. You can’t box grace up in conditions. The Kingdom of God isn’t boxed up in our churches. Imagine church without pulpits or pews, creeds or confessionals-no membership, plate-passing, pledges, vestments, heavenly choirs, or altar calls. Without buildings to maintain or staff to sustain, the church no longer is seen as a private club or guilt-trip haven to heaven. Instead, its focus is on caring and sharing, living here-and-now, not in the hereafter. Rather than part of our worldly empires, the church has become their antithesis. From guts to glory, the church begets reform.” – My Name Is Heretic: Reforming the Church, from Guts to Glory (Paperback – November 21, 2015 by Bruce H. Joffe)

To wake up and give the gift of smiles is truly amazing!”
