This blog was inspired by a challenge from my pastor emeritus. When I queried him about the possibility of going into ministry he said: “whatever the Lord has put on your heart to do, begin where you are, with what you’ve got, and get started doing it!” He says what he means and means what he says. God bless him for that.
So this blog may be a bit unusual as “religious” blogs go. It’s a way of testing the waters. I may include a few sermons preached and lessons taught, but mostly I’m just here to toss out ideas and get your comments. I’d like to know if what I write makes sense to you, or inspires you, or ticks you off. If you’d like to know more about Jesus I’d be happy to share.
As far as a short bio — I’m a married 50-something with a degree in music education. Follows logically that I’d have 20 years experience teaching computer courses, right? :-} I started attending seminary part-time in the fall of ’07, graduated in the spring of ’14 with an M.Div., still not sure exactly where the Lord is leading, but I know it’s the best thing I’ve ever done.
If you’re curious as to what I believe or where I’m coming from, you won’t find it in any mainline denomination or non-denomination (or political party or social program for that matter) but if you read CS Lewis you’ll come close to my heart. And like him, I find myself drawn to the Anglican church, while admitting there’s as much room for improvement there as anywhere.
