Some of you reading this blog may find yourselves uncomfortable. After all, this seems to be a religious blog, and you may not necessarily be religious. You might even think that in some underhanded way I’m trying to push religion on you.
Let not your heart be troubled.
For one thing, I hate the word “religion”, and frankly speaking, I rarely define myself as religious, or worse yet, a religious professional. While I operate in and out of a particular institution, a tribe of Christianity called the United Methodist Church, I don’t define who I am or what I believe strictly within the parameters of that institution.
So this blog is a place of conversation and learning for all thoughtful, open-minded, open-hearted people, no matter what you believe or disbelieve. You bring the gift of yourself, and for that and for you, I am grateful.
