Called to preach as a child, my life has been spent both embracing and resisting spirituality. Though silence is often my preference, my spirit is driven to expression. The Church has provided wonderful opportunities for preaching, learning and service. Now, the other end of my life is starting to come into view. My experiences have shaped my perspectives, and I want to share my feelings. I hope my thoughts will inspire you in your faith journey, whether you support or oppose my viewpoints. I don’t want to write about things that don’t matter, but about significant topics of consequence and even controversy. The cutting edge of my relationship with God has always been at the points of conversion. Your responses are solicited. I hope you will change me, Dear Reader, or be changed by me.
