I suppose I thought some sort of contemplative mantel would fall on me once I was installed as a pastor but that miracle has not occurred. Quite the opposite is true. My pace has amped up ten times. And so has my need to hear from the Lord and walk by his Spirit. The only way to do that is to be awake.
I will write as art first and foremost- to add to the beauty in the world. My writing is my art. It is my craft. It is what I create. It is not primarily criticism nor activism nor theology. It is a shaping of the components of the world in a way that contributes light and glory.
