This is the page where you’re supposed to tell a little bit about yourself. Not too much, I suppose, but enough to let people know who you are.
Where to start? Who am I now and how did I get here? Well, in 1972, fresh out of hippiedom and with the memories of acid trips and regular pot buzzes still lingering in my memory, I found myself in a Christian cult of personality, wrapped in the cloth of a Bible College. It seemed like a good idea at the time – saving people from “the world, the flesh and the devil” as it were. This one decision made huge changes in the whole Scope of my life. My first wife and I finally got out of “the ministry” in 1988, after fifteen years putting “the great commission” ahead of everything else in our lives. Everything – family, friends, career, community, education, money, home… you get the idea.
Unfortunately, that is the major event of my life. Like I said, the repurcussions of that time will linger for the rest of this life’s walk. Since then I’ve been on a quest… find out who the hell I am without the great drape of “the ministry” coloring my every thought and impulse. In 1991 or so, I hit midlife, dropped my former life (also not the Best decision, but it was all mine) and headed out to find my place, that other place, before I was “Christianized”.
More on this later. Thanks for asking.
