this blog bears double purpose: first, to hang something of a curriculum vitae in cyber-space and, second, to provide a portal to further reflections on faith, ministry, and culture as this pilgrim staggers through explorations of each.

blog title comes from the closing paragraphs of the zenith of all poetic writ in the English language: Paradise Lost, by John Milton
“…They looking back, all the eastern side beheld
Of Paradise, so late their happy seat,
Waved over by that flaming brand, the gate
With dreadful faces thronged and fiery arms:
Some natural tears they dropped, but wiped them soon;
The world was all before them, where to choose
Their place of rest, and providence their guide:
They hand in hand with wandering steps and slow,
Through Eden took their solitary way.”
