I’m a Christian in the making, stumbling forward in Jesus and delighting in His grace. I have a passion for the Kingdom of God, a degree in music, and a love for people and for truth in every form.
Professionally I’ve spent most of my life either as a working musician, or in church ministry. Since 1994 I’ve served with Youth With A Mission, (YWAM), as a missionary, teacher and worship leader in Kona, Hawaii, Sarajevo, Bosnia, and numerous locations throughout North America and Europe. These days when I’m not traveling I live in the mountains of Western Maryland, (where I grew up), caring for my 86 year old Mom.
I call this Blog “Dispatches from the Shadowlands” as a nod to both the Apostle Paul who in 1 Corinthians 13:12 says “now we see through a glass darkly“, and C.S. Lewis who – towards the end of The Last Battle refers to this present world as the “Shadowlands.” These are hopeful communications from a shadowy world that cannot yet bear the full strength of the sun.
My purpose for here is to lovingly point people to King Jesus, to showcase His grace, and to declare His Kingdom.
