The purpose of this blog is to dialogue about matters pertaining to Jesus and his Kingdom. I will be posting about biblical texts that I am studying, books that I am reading (or have read), thoughts and convictions that I have, and things that I feel like the Lord is teaching me or the community of which I am a part. I want to encourage readers of these posts to contribute to the conversation. I just ask that everyone be treated with respect when opinions differ. I hope this becomes a safe place to both respectfully disagree and to find common ground as we learn together what it means to follow Jesus by encouraging and praying for one another and by sharing helpful resources. I also welcome the input of those who do not adhere to any form of Christian faith.
