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!

I learned some new terms this week: whatness and thisness.* These words (while seeming to belong in Alice in Wonderland) reflect a deep spiritual truth. Before the 13th century, philosophers had commonly spoken of the term “quiddity” (from the Latin word … Continue reading
