As the warmer weather approaches, I am looking forward to getting back out on the water. The first four really warm days I will do my annual solo trip around Saltspring Island. This is a great time to evaluate my gear and my life. If you are looking for a change, challenge, or a reset I am confident that it can be found out there somewhere. If I can help let me know.
Meister Eckhart said, “God is unnameable and (therefore) Omni-nameable”, and so Meister Eckhart prays, “I pray God to rid me of God. I pray (the unnameable) God to rid me of (the idol I have named) God.”
Chasing the unnameable God is the joy of my life.
For me the experience of God is not found in the certainty of religion but in the mystery of the moment. My writing and life passionately pursue this mystery.
I have been a hockey player, pastor, and entrepreneur. I love life, the outdoors and listening to people's stories. I have been married thirty-nine years to my wife Kelly. Together we have raised four boys. Last year I completed a Wilderness First Aid Course and paddled my kayak for over a hundred hours on five trips. I continue to learn each time I go out and count myself fortunate that we live in such a beautiful part of the world. My writing reflects my passion for the outdoors and my search for truth.
