Images of a pastor's spirit

Growning up in a conservative Christian home and then off to a conservative Christian college, I have seen my fair share of ministers. I have seen the good and the bad....and some would say, the ugly. I have met those that are amazingly self-centered and those that are truly Christ-like. I had the honor photographing the 50th anniversary of Minister Moxley whose service in the Presbyterian church has spanned from the civil rights era until today. These are only two images from an evening where I shot about 500...but they convey the genuine and caring heart of what a minister should be. In a world of bad news in the church it is refreshing to see a minister like this. He is one of the good ones:)
