ABOUT ME

I believe in God as Trinity, a mystery, God as One yet in three Persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I believe the Bible is the word of God and the final authority on all matters so it is important for me to study it, meditate on it and seek to understand it to the best of my ability. We are created in God’s image for the purpose of being in loving relationship with our Creator. To be in relationship, it was imperative that we have free will to choose to reject God’s love. This rejection doesn’t change God’s love so in order to show us the depth of His love, Jesus, both Son and God came to earth to demonstrate God’s love. This was an attempt to have an intimate relationship with us. Through His Holy Spirit He continues to offer us intimacy.

My history has been one of rebellion and searching. Rejecting one religion after another, one church after another, one person after another until there was nothing left. Then empty, God took me by the hand and introduced me, is introducing me, to the vastness of His love, the mystery of humanity, the depths of peace and the heights of joy. In several places in the Bible I am encouraged to love the Lord God with all my mind and with all my heart and with all my soul and with all my strength. If I am successful at this, I am totally empty of all love. Yet then I am told to love my neighbor. But empty, I am a perfect conduit for God’s love. On my own I can’t love very well anyway so this is the solution. God uses me as a vessel to love others.


This I offer to all who I see. Unfortunately, my ego jumps up and down like an annoying dog vying for attention which makes this love inconsistent and choppy. But I sputter on, person to person, relationship to relationship. It's a shared load.
