According to Matthew Chapter 25
I currently live in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and am under private vows as a Third Order Franciscan Friar. I hold an Associates Degree from an Evangelical Charismatic Fellowship, and was commissioned by the same to follow Christ in 1985. I made by profession as a Franciscan Friar in 2009, and was ordained a friar in Indianapolis at our chapter conference.
My life has been full of what many others experience – LIFE! I have had trials, sins, problems, conflicts, been guilty of miscalculations and outright rebellion. Sound familiar.
I believe many people are living with the same today, but have no sense of hope or purpose. BUT – the Good News is, there is both. Hope and a special purpose for each person in creation.
This site is about my own heart, my own experiences, and not meant as a fix all guide for anyone else. I am just like you.
I am a musician, and currently have even played the blues in a local club. I have no hangups about that, or going anywhere, because history and holy scriptures show that Christ went everywhere the common person was to be found. He avoided the “religious” groups in His earthly time frame.
WHY? Because Christianity is an INCLUSIVE movement of a Holy God with an unending Love for people. If you are a pharisee or Sadducee, please don’t read my blog. You will hate it. But if you are just a common person with the common hurts and hangups we all have, by all means, stick with me.
