Writing in the Desert

Many of you know some of my "back story"... about how a guy with a bunch of degrees who "knew" he was supposed to be a Catholic priest since age 6 ended up doing construction for 30 years after being fired from his protestant ministry job and now draws Orthodox cartoons in a basement. But this isn't about "my story".  It is about everyone's story, and an ex-minister with a blog (go figure!) who just wrote one of the finest posts about "everyone's story" I've ever read.

So, I'm going to introduce you to Ryan.  He and I have similar paths (he's a few years behind me), but I've gotten to know him in a lot of ways lately that I'll reveal later but this isn't about that yet. The point right here, right now is:  If you never click on any other link in my blog ever again, click on THIS ONE.
