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 both people for truth.
I’ve spent most of my professional life in music, youth ministry, and since 1994 serving with Youth With A Mission, (YWAM), as a missionary, teacher and worship leader based first in Hawaii, then Central and Western Europe, and numerous locations throughout North America. These days when I’m not traveling I live in the mountains of Western Maryland, where I grew up.
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.
