As you may have guessed from perusing the blog, I’m a Christian. I was born and raised in a Christian home by Christian parents, who themselves had Christian parents, grandparents, aunts & uncles, cousins, and so on. It’s a large family tree, and if nothing else is, Christianity is the constant.
I trained for Christian ministry and have earned the degrees that come with such training. As a child, I dreamed of being a preacher, and for most of my life, believed that was my calling. In seminary, of all places, I began having doubts about that.
But, that is a story for another day. Maybe.
I’m not currently serving in a church, but I still spend a lot of my time thinking about issues related to the church: bible, theology, politics, social activism, justice. What you will find here is no less than a sampling of the ideas that run through my head on a daily basis.
Whatever the topic, my thoughts and words are always a work in progress.
I welcome the thoughts and opinions of anyone who finds their way here, and I hope any conversation we have works like iron sharping iron, bettering us both in the process.
