To blog a few topics from my various interests, will require that I put aside many others. Hopefully, blogging will sharpen my focus and allow me to participate actively in the subjects that remain. What remain will be the storytelling, theology, and environmental concerns. Why those topics? Well, storytelling gives me the double joy of teaching and entertaining. Theology discloses the meaning and purpose of my existence and my concern for the environment lets me participate in the unfolding of creation, not just observe. In the months to follow I hope to tell better stories, understand more, and pollute less.
