I have tried in vain

To stand against the grain

To be what I am not.

For years I have fought to be more than human.

I have longed to exceed expectations

Of my creation.

To be a perfect being

To distinguish feeling

From thought.

I must accept this clay form.

Only then can it be molded into truth.

My hands tremble, an artist I am not.

I must humble myself to be lifted up.

Only then can I achieve what I cannot.

MY NAME IS JOSH MCGARY. First, I am a Pastor of a small church in Portland, Oregon named Aletheia Bible Fellowship. We call it ABF. I have been a pastor there for the better part of 20 years. I am very eclectic. What I love, I love loudly and immersively. I have notable collections of toys, funko pops, and vinyl. I also infamously love pop culture, comic books, technology, the arts, psychology and philosophy. https://sleek.bio/joshmcgary
