A Walk in the Valley

Christian on the borders of the "Valley of the Shadow of Death"
— Pilgrim's Progress, by Frederick Church, c. 1847

It has been said that good stories enrich our lives, not only for the story teller but for those hearing the story as well.

I know that's the case for me, and I hope you'll find it true for you as well. Nothing like a good story.

The story behind this site is about a deadly encounter with evil — and the incredible rescue that took place. A rescue that defies conventional wisdom and logic.

As far as stories go, it's a true story. And although I was a participant, it's really not about me at all.

It's all about the rescue.

Like all good stories, it's really just a small part of the great story — the one that has been (and still is) unfolding about us since the dawn of time.

And that great story has always been the source from which all the good stories are born.

My job here is pretty simple — to re-tell how I was caught up into this particular story.

You see, the real Author of this story just happened to give me a part in it. And then told me to share it.

To be honest, I have to admit that it's not a part I would likely have chosen.    You can read it here →

Greetings, Salutations & Welcome

Beyond Here there be Dragons.

Yes, this may seem to be a curious welcome message. It does, however, seem to be a bit more fitting than the usual "Welcome to my site" sort of greeting.

Then again, I have never been very accomplished at the fine art of welcome etiquette.

Consider it to be my gentle admonition to tread lightly, pilgrim — things are not what they seem.

I believe in Christianity as I believe the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.
— C.S. Lewis

From the Blog

Yes, there is a blog. Please try to contain your excitement at this announcement.

While I do check the website on an almost daily basis, you should know that the blog receives sporadic attention on my part.

Updates and posting to the blog tend to be somewhat irregular due to real life and the fact that I am subject to frequent fits of abject avoidance.

In avoiding any precipitous promises on my part, I would mention that I really am trying to do better.
