MN Christmas 2007 057

In no specific order, things that make life more enjoyable include strong French-pressed coffee, putzing on a guitar or mandolin, my better “7/8ths” (wife of 39 years), three great kids, 8 awesome grandkids, charcoal grilling in the dead of winter, digging in the garden on those hot summer days, the guys I regularly meet with on Saturday mornings, a good orthopedic surgeon and an occasional IPA.

I’m relatively conservative in my politics and lean towards an open theistic perspective in my Christian faith.

In a nutshell, this blog is an attempt to think through and understand what it is I believe about God and how I relate to him. Given that all Christians work from the same “source material”, the wide range of Christian thought frustrates me. How can it be that some believe a Calvinist perspective while others come to an Arminian perspective? In addition, how can one know for sure whether some action or event is the direct result of God’s will in their life – or simply something that would have happened anyway?

I’m delighted you’re here. Please poke around and feel free to drop any comments or questions. My end goal is to seek the truth and I welcome the insight and input of those willing to help me to better understand and deepen my Christian faith.
