INTRODUCTION

Most autobiographies begin with the birth and childhood of the subject and proceed through life until the end of the story or death of the character. True to my faith, I would like to begin with my memory of a new birth experience when I was 15, or as a student of Reformed Christianity believes, the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Just as my experiences accumulate and my perspective of them adjusts, I want to continue to add to and revise my reflections of them at this site. I’ll be posting photographs, artifacts, and eventually videos of some wonderful 8 mm films taken over the years. So please check back from time to time and feel free, in keeping with our online community, to comment below. Here is a tentative outline of how we’ll proceed, each item linked appropriately to the personal essay of that memory.
