Life Walk Circles mini
Hi. I’m Dave.
I am on a journey.
I call it a “Life Walk”.

The older I get, and the more I learn, the more I realize how much I don’t know. I am increasingly wary of those who propose to have all the answers. The experiences I’ve had, the things I have discovered, and the questions I still have, I share with others through counseling, writing and blogging, singing, and just plain friendship.

I been involved in “church” much of my life. I’ve been an elder, a co-pastor, a worship leader, etc. etc. In December of 2007, my wife and I finally came out of organized religion. I still function in many of the areas I used to, but I now do so in a more free-flowing, organic fashion, outside the walls of what we have called “the church.”
I now believe the “good news” is better than I ever imagined, and realize Christianity does not own God. Many of the beliefs I used to hold dearly have been brought into serious question, and many who I once “worshiped” with would now consider me a heretic.

Anyway, this is a journey of much discovery. It’s exciting, frustrating, fun, and scary. I read of many on the same journey, but I know very few on this journey locally.  If you live in or around Fort Wayne, Indiana, please feel free to contact me.

Read my blogs, check out some of the links. Hopefully, you’ll find something of interest here. Either way, be blessed on your journey.

Who I’d like to meet:
People looking for friendship on this amazing, sometimes confusing, journey called life. Wouldn’t mind getting together for coffee, a movie, or hanging out on occasion. Having some more prayer-partners wouldn’t hurt. Of course, my wife and I are always interested in meeting new couples, as well.
