“Every scribe who has become a disciple in the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old.”

Salut! My name is Ryan, and this is my blog.

For some time now I have been meaning to formally organize some of these thoughts, but as always, life tends to present other demands, some more pressing in nature. Though I know oral cultures are fairly reliable, concerning myself, and what I learn, trust the weakest pen more than the strongest memory.

So now, I have assembled what I can for my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, to first give due honor to his name and guide others in faith and knowledge of him. Take these words for what they’re worth – obviously, my thoughts are in no way inspired, but the humble letters of a scribe.

Just as a quick introduction to me, I was born and raised in and around Madison, Wisconsin, before going to Moody Bible Institute, first in Spokane, then in Chicago.

Afterwards, I stayed in Chicago for another year, teaching a private Christian school and working for a parachurch – thereafter, briefly serving in missions in Montreal and as an intern at my hometown church in Wisconsin.

During this time, all the while I have been working on my Master of Divinity from Tyndale Seminary in Toronto, Ontario, about six months at a time.

Though I have broad interests, I enjoy wandering in the Lord’s world of the great outdoors, sports of all kinds, arts and architecture, board games and chess, cars and libraries, traveling and languages – altogether a range of blessing and excitement the earth has to offer.
