"See the Church! She's beautiful, glorious. Do you see her? There... amidst the dry wood... the flower coming forth from the vine!" -Me

I Am Not Paul
I am not Paul, but I am thankful for the many times and places I have encountered his footprints along my journey.
I am not Paul, but my heart beats for the Church. My prayer daily is that she be encouraged, strengthened, and filled with God's love and grace, that the glory of Christ may be revealed in Her.
I am not Paul, but I am a friend of God in Christ Jesus. If you are God's friend, I want to be your friend too, that we may love, encourage, help and support one another regardless of where we may each be in our journey.
I am not Paul, but I endeavor to love all who are loved by God. If you are not yet God's friend, you can be if you choose.
I am not Paul, but I have encountered others who think they are. Perhaps you have too.
I am not Paul, but I am on the journey we each must take. If you'd like to join me for a while I'd be happy for your company. I have learned many things along the way, and I'm sure you have too.
I am not Paul. My name is Rick, and I'm very glad to be here with you. By His grace may we follow together where He leads.
