I am Larry Burtoft and this is my blog. I am a follower of Jesus Christ who is attempting to “Carpe diem coram Deo” – to live each day before God with authenticity, wisdom, humility, joy and compassion. This is the place where I will post occasional musings on matters of fundamental importance to all of us – things theological, ethical, political, cultural, relational. I hope that here you will find thoughts worthy of your time and consideration. I welcome your responses, insights, critiques, wisdom and humorous asides. Hopefully this will be a place where we can journey together toward more clarity and understanding about what matters most. Thanks for visiting. Do come again.
