Well, I’m gonna give this blogging thing a shot again. I’ve attempted it before but was very bad at it. Let’s see if I can be better at being bad at it this time around. For my first post, I’m introducing what you’ll find at the “About this Blog” page.
I struggle to call my experience and engagement with religion or god “faith.” But I haven’t a better word. There are a lot of days I don’t think about God, and I most definitely don’t think about God in the sense of some personal being somewhere out there taking account of my thoughts and actions. I encourage you to slog through my thesis section (be sure to read the main page first) to get a better feel for my faith and god and Christianity. It will explain a lot about how I approach being a Christian; it may not be headed in the right direction for most folks (and no doubt it’s probably too long and boring), but it gives some sense of where I’m coming from, helps trace how I got to where I’m at and gives shape to where I’m trying to go.
This blog will be an application of my thesis work to my thinking on any number of subjects from politics to religion, from sports to family, and even rants on things that annoy me. I hope it informs and encourages you, while also functioning as a way for me to control the thoughts that haunt me by imprisoning them in pixels on a screen.
I’m wrong a lot. And I welcome you telling me so. Please comment and contribute to what I hope to see resemble a conversation.
Thanks for dropping in. Stay around for awhile. Come back often. And, if you’re so moved, please share what you find here.
