A Fresh Start

Hello Anyone,

I need this blog to help me learn the discipline of writing. As some of you may know I am currently pursuing a Masters in Biblical Studies. I need to get better at writing and be more disciplined about putting my thoughts down.

I will be posting thoughts of devotion, theology, and humor (at least funny to me). Also, I will be posting some of my papers that I write for my classes. Some of these papers will not make sense because you will not have the full context of the assignment, but I will try to help fill in the blanks.

I encourage you to please comment. I do not want to hear the some old stuff, I do not need to be patted on the back. I am a big boy and can take criticism. Please engage the material if you find it challenging. Also, please do not hesitate to offer suggestions about my writing style or material. Press me to think more deeply, if you feel that is what I need. Most of you will be my friends who will be humoring me by reading my random musings, so I am counting on you to help me be better, as I am a beginner and all of my thoughts may not be clear enough. Of course, I will feel free to completely ignore your advice, but I promise to always thoughtfully consider it.

Please also understand that I can be an incredible jerk. I will try my best to limit this in my writings and replies.

Blessings and I look forward to hearing from you soon.



  1. OK, you asked for it. Don't go crying if I don't say what you want me to. Happy bloggong!

  2. This is some of the worst writing I have read. :)

    Seriously, though, I am looking forward to keeping up with your thoughts and your experiences over in Israel as well as learning from you by reading your papers. May God bless you in your time there.


  3. You? An incredible jerk? Are we talking about the same person?

  4. You might be a jerk = Understatement of the year!

  5. Oh wow! Don blogging. My chance to get some revenge!
