I have done some soul searching and have decided to change the direction of my site. I will no longer write about any specific church, politics or my denomination. I will write about the hypocrisy of my own life and the struggles I have in living in the 21st century as a follower of Jesus. I hope to add some humor too. Obviously, I still have a lot to learn. I believe in God's grace and personal freedom. I am struggling with where I fit in. I am obviously different. I will not judge. I hope we can agree to disagree with respect for one another. I have deleted some posts because in the view of people I greatly respect I needed to. The last 5 years have been tough. I usually get through tough times by laughing and poking fun. I haven't had a lot to laugh about recently. I pray that joy comes back. It will, I'm confident of that.

I hope that I can help you in your "recovery." I also hope that in writing about your struggles that you will also share your "successes." We can all learn from each other.

Prov 27:17, Jonah 2, Phil 4:8

Sounds to me like you are on your way to recovery. Such humility in the face of correction is a rare find. I'm pulling for you!

Great to hear from you. I hope things are going well in the desert.


Thanks for your heart. I see you have started a blog. I look forward to reading it in the future!

If I can figure it out, I'll write a blog every now and then. See why I needed you? You don't learn those things in phd!

I have also tried to stay away, for the most part from all of the SBC stuff on my blog. It is not why I started and it sure isn't going to drive it. We are all in process and you have been a real encouragement to me with your humor, your attitude, and your graced. Whatever fire you are receiving for your stands, take lightly - I have seen some out of line in this, but I have not gained that impression of you. It is o.k. to state our convictions, but I have not gone over all of your posts closely. Keep writing and keep pointing us to Jesus.

I'm don't want to get worked up anymore about non-essentials. I may not understand the freedom of others, but that is between them and God.

Obviously, I don't know a whole lot about you... where you've been, what you've been through, who you've been in the past, etc... but I do get a sense of who God has been crafting you to be, and who you seem to be now. It's amazing to me how blogging reveals so much about us, you know?

So, who do I see through what I've read here?

I see that you are a light, Kevin, and from what I can tell, both your life and your blogging help point others toward THE LIGHT. Quite honestly, that's about all most of us sinful human beings can ever hope to be or to achieve.

Keep passionately following Christ, my friend... He'll restore your joy soon!
