More in a couple weeks.
So I'm stuck blogging from the MWR. Which doesn't much like gmail, so more crapmonkeys.
Reading Thirsting for God in a Land of Shallow Wells, by Matthew Gallatin. Good stuff, and a lot of it resonates with me on several levels. It's the story of a fellow who was a Protestant minister who eventually gave up on Protestantism entire.
I've been asked a couple times to blog about my conversion from being a nonobservant Baptist to being an Orthodox. I've resisted trying to attempt that for several reasons.
First, I'm a lousy Orthodox and a lousy Christian. First among sinners, and all I ever seem to do is stumble and then try to get up again.
Second, the process took well over a decade and summarizing it in a blog entry isn't easy.
Third, Orthodoxy isn't something you can explain. It's something you experience, something you taste. I came at Orthodoxy backwards, looking for something that is, in the big picture, not as important. I found the living God.
There are more reasons, but those are the big ones.
