Josh Landrith Joins Our Glendale Family on January 31, 2021

Joshua David Landrith Joins Glendale United Methodist Church Nashville TN

We are blessed that Josh Landrith decided to make Glendale his home church during worship on January 31, 2021! We are excited to be on this journey of faith + life with you, Josh. Welcome to our beautifully inclusive + justice seeking family that shares God’s love with ALL people – just as they are!

A little background on Josh’s journey with the church: “I grew up in the Christian faith and ended up leaving it due to many things, mainly the problem of suffering in the world and just a general confusion with the way I had been taught to understand God and the Bible. I am thankful for certain aspects of the church environment I grew up in and there are good things I learned there, but there were also other things I was supposed to believe that did not morally feel right to me. I ended up rekindling my faith over the past year and a half or so, discovering an understanding of Christianity that truly reveals a God of love and grace, but I still didn’t think I could ever be a part of a church again because of the tendency churches have to put hard labels on who is ‘in’ and who is ‘out.’

I discovered Glendale while just curiously looking at Methodist churches in the area. Looking at Glendale’s Instagram page made me very fascinated to check the church out. I quickly fell in love with the place, mainly due to their mission towards inclusivity, their open spirit, and their passion for justice in our world. I am excited to join the church and be a part of what’s going on here.
