Matthew Ian Fleming

Hello class! I've never done a Tackk before so i'm not sure what is customary but here is my first stab at an introduction. i am currently on internship at Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd in Minneapolis. I'm originally from Northern California but have lived in Minnesota for the past nine years, first attending Concordia College in Moorhead, and then as a youth director at University Lutheran Church of Hope in Minneapolis. One of the things I am most excited about in this course, is a chance to focus on blogging. I have wanted to start a blog for quite some time but have not had the commitment, time, or drive to do so. A pressing deadline and grade might be just the push that I need to generate some web content!

My wife, HAnnah, and I live in Saint Paul and enjoy exploring our neighborhood with our dog, Fitzgerald, cooking extravagant meals, singing with The Singers: Minnesota Choral Artists, and holding our 100-year-old home together with duct tape and a whole lot of love. One more exciting bit in our life is that Hannah is pregnant and we will welcome this wonderful, terrifying, thrilling, and exhausting bundle of something this coming March.

I'm looking forward to reading your Tackks and getting to know this class as we venture into the interwebs, listening for God's whisper in our lives, in our culture, and in our church.
