A Journey in Banners: 2006

A much more gritty, urban cityscape became the new look of the blog in 2006. Honestly, I don’t remember why I chose this particular image (Hamilton ON), especially considering that we’d moved back to British Columbia the previous summer.

This was the year, of course, that Post-Charismatic was published here as part of the website — a very large part. Researching, writing, and bouncing ideas around lasted for almost two years, but it was worth the time and effort.

The impetus for writing was simply the proverbial straw the broke the camel’s back: I had just one too many conversations with disillusioned young Christians who were ready to ditch their faith completely due to the excesses and abuses in the charismatic movement.

Some people yell. Some have hissy fits. Others throw things.
I write.
Meanwhile, as the blog continued, the topic of dreams — a recurring theme over the years — continued to percolate its way to the surface of my thinking. And, predictably, into my writing.
