About this blog


We live in this world, but we are destined for eternity, driving closer to it every day. It took a global pandemic for me to realize that knowing about God doesn’t do anybody any good, including me. Therefore, I started this blog, a first step in a quest to encourage unity in love for God and love for neighbor, expressed in the infinite diversity of the people He created. Hebrews 10:24 says “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works,” therefore we seek to dedicate our creativity, endowed by a loving Creator, to the task of building holy character, glorifying to God!

This blog is about the Gospel of the eternal kingdom of Jesus Christ and its relevance to our present world. That kingdom is one defined by agape love. If you read only one thing on this site, read this post about how Christianity is defined by this love. Christianity is not Christianity, and we are not fully ourselves, without it.

As a layman, I offer only my life experiences, combined with what I’ve picked up through reading, listening, study, and prayer.  I write to encourage, to stir up my readers to love and good works.  (Hebrews 10:24)  If the Lord wills, I will continue to write and do this or that.  (James 4:15)
