What is this blog about? The blog title is from Hebrews chapter 3.

But encourage each other daily, while it is still called today, so that none of you is hardened by sin’s deception.  Hebrews 3:13, CSB (emphasis added)

This life is for making the decision for God. I have this moment in time, and I’m not guaranteed the next. I need to be responsive to God “while it is still called today.” The blog will be my place to ponder faith, culture, and daily life.

    Hi Russ

    I took your advice and made a stab at using WordPress to create a blog (which is actually more of a website, so far). It’s mostly text right now but I have some big dreams to put some flesh on the skeleton. I’ll keep tweaking for a while and then make an effort to advertise more widely later this year or in 2012.

    Thanks for your encouragement.
