To be ALIVE is to be in state of continuous growth and love.

This blog is for those who take the line in the Nicene Creed seriously that says, “I await the resurrection of the dead and the life of the ages to come.”
That is the life immortal into which Jesus Christ will someday usher renewed humans. These people are called Christians, but since Christianity has become such a broad term and Christ said that the gate into immortal life is narrow and difficult to squeeze through, then perhaps those few serious people would be better identified as “Aspiring Immortals”.
This blog is a journal of just such an Aspiring Immortal. Through stories, poems, and journal entries I teach orthodox Christianity. As a writer I aspire to be like GK Chesterton, CS Lewis, and favorite Saints whose vision have guided aspiring immortals through this earthly life.
We try to improve life on this planet for ourselves and for each other, yet, there is so much more that immortal life has to offer. Aspiring immortals are the salt of this earth and the substance of the next.
I welcome your sincere thoughts and critique of my literature.
