Today  I started reading Foxe’s Book of Martyrs and was moved to respond by journaling the opportunities that  I see around me to count the cost of discipleship. I realize that I may not ever be called to lay down my life for the Lord but while I am still in the body I want to count the cost of my discipleship and be used of God to bring others to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
It is my hope that eventually this website will be used as a resource for believers to get involved in their own local churches and to grow in Jesus Christ.

  • Clarity. Brevity. Life.

    My goals in blogging are threefold--clarity, brevity, and life.

    First, my goal is to be crystal clear in presenting issues that I think deserve to be considered by my readers, either because of their current nature or because of their pertinence to society.

    The second is to be brief.

    The third goal is to portray life—not as thought about in an ivory tower, but as through the eyes of a twenty-two year old newlywed who is ever vigilant not to shut his eyes on reality.

    Clarity—brevity—life, that is all that needs to be said.
