Not how you thought a blog on identity and ultimate questions would begin, huh? Neither did I, but it happened...so let's go with it.
I am an Eagle. A Concordia Eagle to be exact. All of my degrees, thus far, come from Concordia University Irvine, CA where I studied education, theology, and culture. Best of all, that's where I met my wife. I owe a lot to CUI.
So, when Rev. Quinton Anderson, the campus pastor at CUI, contacted me about blogging for their series, "One God. One Question. What Would You Ask?" I jumped at the opportunity.
On Mondays and Fridays at the start of their Spring semester students are being asked to reflect on BIG questions of identity, purpose, and faith including, "Who am I?" "Why do bad things happen?" and "What is good, true, and beautiful?" Alongside the chapel messages that address each question the students, faculty, and staff at CUI are invited to explore the questions via blog posts on the same topic.
I am excited, and honored, to write two blogs for the series:
- Who am I?
- What is good, right, and beautiful? (on the minds of many freshman who are embarking on CUI's Core Curriculum)
I invite you to check out the blog series and read my first post -- "Who am I?" -- at the Abbey West blog.
And, yeah, go Eagles!
