Welcome to my blog about living as apprentices of Jesus! I am passionate about spiritual transformation and about helping others become like Jesus for the sake of others.
One of my favorite quotes is: "Whatever job we get and whatever task we are assigned can serve as a container for grace" (Eugene Peterson in "Practical Resurrection"). I pray that the words and sentences on this blog may also serve as "containers of grace" for its readers.
I ordinarily post on Wednesdays and Saturdays and welcome your comments on any post!

As a failed science student (due as much to poor teaching as to lack of aptitude), I have lately become energized about filling my huge gaps of scientific knowledge by the resurgence of interest by scientists and theologians in the relationship between science … Continue reading
