I am an Adventist pastor writing from the land down under. Except its not the place you might be thinking about. I am writing from El Centro, California that contrary to its Spanish translation is not “at” the center of, nor “is” the center of anything. On second thought, if we consider the center as the middle, then I am in the middle of the desert. Being as it may, I find myself so far outside the conversation going on in the blog-o-shpere that this is where I begin, to post my thoughts on God, life and culture (in other words-everything).
