The fact that you've clicked on the link to this page tells me two things - you are an inquisitive soul and you have some time to kill in cyberspace today.
I will do my best to keep this short and sweet.
I became a Christian in 1980. I hope in the future to post my testimony on this website, but some of my experiences with the Lord have been out of the ordinary, and I hesitate to share them with strangers. But if I ever do post that amazing true story, a link to it will be provided here.
Sixteen years later (in 1996, for those of you who are mathematically challenged) I was dragged, kicking and screaming, into the computer age when my boss plopped a PC onto my desk at work and said, "We're going to start using this."
After my initial panic attack, and with a lot of coaching from the company's "computer guy," I discovered that cyberspace was truly a beautiful place, full of limitless opportunities and adventures in learning.
My wife finally persuaded me that we needed our own PC at home. After that I had lots of time to fool around in this incredible digital world. Somewhere along the way I decided that the internet needed another Christian website, so Living on Purpose was born.
Although almost everything in life seems totally beyond my control, in this little speck of cyberspace I am Master and Commander! I say whatever I want, post whenever I want, and answer to no man! Cyber-life is good!
I must, however, answer to God - and so must you.
I strive to keep this site focused on basic, practical, foundational Christian teaching and ideas. I hope to avoid petty conflicts about non-essential froth.
My goal is to introduce you, and everyone else who surfs by, to the love and grace of Jesus, who also happens to be the kindest person I have ever known. Discovering his forgiveness and friendship has been the greatest blessing of my life.
My hope is that you will be become better acquainted with Jesus of Nazareth after you have visited here - and that once you know him, you will also begin to discover his purposes for your life.
