The first post – Why I started and some personal information

Here I am writing my first post. I sit infront of my computer and think of all the great things that I have been planning to write and draw a blank. I even think of the file I am already keeping of posts that I could write, some in fact are already written. There is even a post saved and intended to be the first post on the site.

I am a student at a Bible College in British Columbia. I am married and have a dog. I work 3+ days a week take full time classes and am currently working on my internship at a career counselling facility. So you may ask why I would want to take on another responsibility? Why would I commit to writing posts for a blog? It’s not like I will be posting about all of the cool things that happend to me so that my family can read it and keep up with me.

I will commit to writing this because I have thoughts to get off my chest. I have struggles with the current state of the Christianity that I live and see being lived around me. I don’t really know how to live out my Christian life each day. I really don’t like how I see other Christians living out their lives. I feel ashamed of the decisions I make, and of the ones I see made. I don’t like that there are so many taboo subjects in the church that are not talked about like porn, pre-marital sex, and homosexuality.

I hope to coherently approach these subjects, among others, and provide people with things to think about.

  1. Welcome to the blogging Universe! I am Tim Kurek, the Pastor (I hate using the title because I am just Tim) of Uriah Ministries. I too feel the angst you feel, watching as our church is made a mockery of, moreso even by the Christians themselves than the non-Christian critics. I would like to extend an offer of partnership. Anything you need, let me know and I will be there for you. We are brothers in this fight, you and I. And nice first blog by the way… I will be reading more!

    Your Friend,
    timothy kurek

  2. thanks for the support.

  3. Hi Curtis… I offer a welcome to the Blogosphere as well. I’m not a Christian but feel a kinship in your writing. I’ll be stopping in from time to time to offer words of encouragement on your walk with Christ, get a little knowledge myself and perhaps offer a little insight from the views of a Deist. May your journey go well. Blessing, Julian

  4. Go for it, Curtis. You are chasing down important thoughts. It is a time of reinvention. I’ll keep reading. Peace!

  5. Noticed you popping in on some LWC blogs[my wifes included] and thought i would drop in and say hello. I have enjoyed what I have seen and read thus far and plan to add you to my blogroll. God Bless you on your journey with Him.
