The obligatory first post

Introductions are always a difficult thing. In one sense, I need to give you a reason for reading this blog and what you can expect. However, I'm not entirely sure where this blog will end up. How's that for honesty?

I'm a pastor. Well, I'm a Christian first and foremost. One of those fundamental, evangelical, I think the Bible means what it says and says what it means sort of fellows. That affects everything else. My marriage, my parenting, my vocation, my friendships - pretty much everything. I view this blog as an extension of who I am and what I'm thinking about at any given moment. I view this blog as a way to get the thoughts of my relationship with Christ out of my head and out there in order that it might glorify Jesus and maybe help someone else.

I'll do some book reviews. I'll do some theological reflection. But the focus will always be on Jesus and what he's teaching me at any given moment. I don't know that I'll have a "set schedule", but that's the joy of RSS - you can add this to your feed reader and it will notify you. No ads, no selling your data to the Kenyans (yes, that's totally a thing). Just honest reflection of someone who is still trying to figure out what it means to follow Jesus and help others do the same.

I hope you'll find it helpful and a blessing.
