This blog was originally intended as a space for me to chronicle the events in my family’s life here in Shanghai, one of the world’s biggest, most dynamic cities. And it does get used for that from time to time. But more often than not, I find myself writing about whatever social, theological, or personal issue that happens to be on my mind at the time. When possible, I try to tie it into living in Shanghai, because the discontinuity between the title and the content kind of bugs me. With that said, I hope that whoever happens upon this site will find something encouraging, entertaining, or at least interesting. And of course, feedback is most welcome!
