A Life of Labels

As I mention in my profile, my journey of awareness led me out of the rich subculture of Christian fundamentalism that I was born into and brought me to the more spiritually satisfying land of mainline Protestantism in my 30s.

But my travels didn’t end there. I kept asking questions and looking for answers. Christian Gnosticism. Buddhism. Taoism. Jump forward a few decades, and now I tell people I’m a profane Presbyterian Zen Taoist.

What I find interesting is that when I tell people this, they don’t ask me about the Zen part or about the Taoist part or even the Presbyterian part. They ask me about the profane part.

The Prodigal Returns

At the beginning of 2016 after more than six years of keeping this daily blog, I decided it was time to let the fields lie fallow for a few seasons.
