Suburban Midwestern churches, boarding school in Africa, and spending most of my adolescence on an island among expatriates formed me; since then, schooling, my family, and a few decades of ‘professional Christian ministry’ have done some shaping as well. I’m moving into midlife with a range of interests and a batch of experience, and enjoying the opportunity to swirl all that into blogs and books. My hope is to raise a few questions, open a few doors, and spark some thinking about life well-lived. Along the way, it’d be nice to bring a smile, too.

Toucanic? In Costa Rica, we got to see birds that until then had only appeared on cereal boxes–so imagine my surprise to discover that those beaks really were huge, and those bodies really were black and bright. But the biggest surprise was watching a flock of toucans overhead: power, grace…mesmerizing.
