*Disclaimer: I look back at some of these early posts and am embarrassed. At the same time, I take this to be a good thing since it shows that I’ve continually grown as a person, a Christian, a thinker, and a writer. Nevertheless, that doesn’t mitigate the abundant immaturity, naivety, stupidity, and the like found in some, or many, of these posts. As readers I hope you will keep in mind that my life captured on this blog is very much a work-in-progress.
