about this blog.

for many years in the first century following the early followers of jesus were called followers of the Way. his Way is simple–to love God and to love others in the Way of jesus christ. yet in that journey, we often falter. we become rebellious, errant, disobedient, unruly, arrogant, and contradictory to the Way of jesus.

in short, we become WayWard. it is only through and by the grace of God that we can turn from our own ways and again follow his with a broken and contrite heart.

the WayWard follower blog exists not merely to inspire conversation around loving God and loving others in the Way of jesus christ…but to inspire movement.   through these writings and creative communication, i hope to inspire thoughtful conversation that creates intentional movement in building bridges between opposing worldviews in a peaceful and productive manner. in other words, i want reconciliation.

i want to encourage and be encouraged; to challenge and be challenged; to question and be questioned; to inspire and be inspired.
