About me - The Short Version
Writing, for Jason, is a way to express the ongoing story of theology and of the influence it has on our lives. With every book or article, he hopes readers get a sense of the complexity of human nature and the necessity of knowing faith thrives on divine mystery. Captivated by the spiritual component of life, Jason loves to read everything from the Greek classics to the Sunday comics.
While serving as pastor of a congregation near Memphis, TN, Jason wrote a weekly column in a local newspaper called Sermon in a Nutshell and has had devotions published in The Secret Place, among others.
Unafraid to tackle topics many people don't want to talk about, Jason has a concise, lighthearted style of writing about difficult subjects. From the serious to the humorous, Royle weaves stories that make you grin, ponder, and perhaps plunge anew into your own leaps of faith.
Jason holds a Bachelor’s in Social Work, a Master's in Theology and a Doctorate in Ministry. Today he lives with his wife and children in Schaefferstown, PA, where he serves as the pastor of St. Paul’s United Church of Christ.
