My old self has been crucified with Christ.  
It is no longer I who live,
but Christ lives in me.
So I live in this earthly body
by trusting in the Son of God,
who loved me
and gave himself for me.
– Galatians 2:20

As for me,
may I never boast about anything
except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.
– Galatians 6:14

My poetry and prose are written with the desire to guide us between two dangerous paths of Christian living.  On the one hand, there is the inward navel-gazing of super piety, and on the other, the cold dogmatic orthodoxy devoid of love.  Both paths, upon which we are all prone to wander, are attempts to justify our existence before others and God, and lead us away from the cross and empty tomb of our crucified and risen Jesus Christ, who alone can justify us.
