About the Author

Greg Thomas (BS, Oregon State University; MD, Oregon Health Sciences University; family practice internship/residency, University of Missouri) has spent nearly four decades as a family doctor in Salem, Oregon. Greg met and married his wife, Heidi, while in medical school. Even while working full-time and co-raising their five children, Greg looked for opportunities for theological reflection, beginning with teaching his three-year old son's Sunday school class with the able assistance of a skunk puppet named Flower.
