About me and this blog

I am a 24-year old graduate student pursuing my Masters in Divinity at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (South Hamilton, MA).  I have been living in the Boston area for the past 6+ years.

Writing was never my thing.  Having earned a Bachelor’s in Accounting, coming to seminary immediately after undergrad was a huge culture shock.  I thrived in a world ruled by exams, case studies, problem sets and financial statement presentations.  Objectivity was my thing.  Even as a child, I had a hard time coloring outside the lines.  Pursuing a Master’s degree under a more liberal curriculum changed everything I knew about education.  Sure I took some English and Philosophy classes in college, but only because they were required.  Reading thousands of pages a semester and writing papers longer than 5 pages was foreign to me.  I guess I caught a glimpse of what it feels like to be an immigrant.  I always looked the part, but it wasn’t until I got to Gordon-Conwell that I got cast into this calling firsthand.

My intention for this blog is not to impose my opinions on others.  It’s not to preach to the wide masses nor try to convert skeptics to non-Christians.  No, my hope with this blog is that it will be an insight into the life of a man trying make things out for himself.  I’ve always been taught that the Gospel is the only lens in which we are to look at life.  I’m pretty sure these past 24 years of life do not fully exemplify that sentiment in an exhaustive manner, but regardless, I’m doing what I can to make it truth.  For every entry I will attempt to make a Gospel Connection (GC) relating that particular episode to the Gospel news.  If I’m not seeing life through a lens of truth, where does that leave me?

I still have a long way to go before– well, I actually don’t know what I’m striving to be.  What I do know is that at that end, there lies a hope far greater than anything I can imagine.  And I pray that the Lord will be with me, one step at a time…
