As I enter the third third of life, I am becoming aware of what Dr. James Houston says is the role of elders today: “to enlarge spiritual vision, being devoted to prayer, living in the face of death, as a living curriculum of the Christian life.”  I am a life long and life wide learner who seeks to:

  • decipher the enigma of our worth
  • rescue from the agony of prayerlessness
  • integrate spiritual friendship

May we have enough grace to learn and mentor.

For more in-depth writing, you may enjoy “More Enigma than Dogma” in which I comment on “Relationships, Culture, and Current Events” through the lens of the mysteries of God’s character, and our identity in Christ.

  10. Great “about” page Rusty. James Houston and so many others have noted well our role to be one of prayer and walking our faith in a manner that people can read the Bible in our actions.

    Hey Rusty –
    Not sure if you remember me – I run a blog that you follow – “Peace Hacks.” I recently moved the blog to a self hosted site which means that you’ll no longer receive emails for new posts. If you’re still interested in getting notifications, you can simply go to peacehacks.com, click the “following” button (to unfollow the site), then click the resultant “follow” button.
    Hope you’re well, and hope to hear from you soon.
