Who I Am

I grew up in the south western part of Virgina, in a City called Lynchburg. Some people know that city because it is where Jerry Falwell came to prominence – Thomas Road Baptist Church, Liberty University – I know the city because it is the place of by birth, experience, and maturation.

I have always been somewhere stuck in the middle. I grew up having “liberal views” for my conservative city, but then realized that others thought I have conservative views; I usually have a lot of debtors. However, my faith was forged from a variety of spectrums. I attended Thomas Road Baptist Church and would say that is where I found much of my spiritual foundation, but I also attended a variety of rural and urban Black Churches. As the son of a Black preacher I learned to understand the world of the Black church at a young age and was taught how our faith is personal,public, but not individual. I learned that God is a God of justice & mercy and that love is an utterly complex word.

Thanks for checkin’ out my site and reading a little bit about who I am. Feel free to make comments, ask questions etc. I am open.

Just  a warning. I usually just write, I don’t take a great deal of time editing many of my posts, not because I don’t care, but because for me this is an online journal and I can’t justify spending an immensity  of  time on this when I am balancing other obligations and responsibilities. Basically, I write from my heart and my head, but not always from the editor’s perspective. If there are any errors grotesque or minor, I apologize, as I re-read a post they may get corrected – or my wife will find it.
