I grew up in Transylvania in a devoted Christian family of 10 when it was not cool to be in one of those. Can't say for sure if it is now... I have been gone for more than ten years already; I suppose it never gets really easy in that part of the world.
I have learned a few things though about keeping my head up. I have watched my mother braving with eight children while making sure that the secret about her now sick lay-minister husband--who is regularely beat-up by the secret police for speaking up about God--never gets out. I understand now; it was for our own sake.
And I also learned what it means to stand up against a world of pain and suffering just to see truth triumph. Nope!! That is not how one looses faith, that is how faith is refined. Never a dull moment!!
I came to the U.S. with my wife with the understanding that God wanted us to get better equiped for the work he has for us. Ten years later, we are serving God in a small Texan Baptist church in Bonham. God is wonderful!!
I hope you will enjoy some of the things I have to say. One of these days I have to start put into words what life in communist Romania was like. We'll see...
For now, I encourage you to follow the "worship wars" hub. Keep in mind that this is a subject that I will keep on braving to develop.
