Why the blog?

“In His Shadow” contains the spiritual ponderings of one who is Beloved of God (just like you!). This is where you’ll find the somewhat random thoughts of a Christian who lives “outside the box” of Christianity. Mild-mannered church-goer by Sunday, there is much inside my heart that leaps in tall bounds beyond the four walls of a church building and speeds faster than a bullet train to color outside the lines of religious traditions.

In fact, I don’t even “believe in” organized church and church buildings, although you’ll find me there most Sundays.

I share thoughts here primarily as a way to record things of significance to me and to share them with my family and dear friends. Since my “dear friends” is a list that grows all the time, I find it easiest to post these thoughts online where they can be read by anyone I share this blog with — or even those who stumble across it at the moment they need to hear something the most.

Although the posts here might be sporadic, you can find me any given day, as my tagline sometimes proclaims, “Daily living in the delight, refuge, and provision of the Almighty.”
