What I Believe

by - 11:15 PM

This is a glimpse of what I believe. Christianity is not a religion. It is a lifestyle of following and becoming more like Jesus. It is a relationship that inspires a lifestyle of faith. And this living faith requires a fighting spirit that is fueled not by self ambition or hatred, but by Love. It is not for the weak-minded or faint-hearted. It is an adventure for the humbled in heart. It is not for the proud or for those who think themselves good men. It is for those who realize their soul need, their heart ache, their shattered spirit. Let me tell you, what makes a Christian is not a person who has it all together. But someone who realizes his lostness. I am lost. And I am that brokenness in need of a Savior.

Welcome to my wayfaring world of stories. I’m a traveling musician and music educator from Melbourne living in Kabul, Afghanistan. Join me on my quest to embrace people of peace in tough places, inspire creative education where none exists, spark conversations that challenge the status quo, and collaborate with like-minded young people to catalyze a movement of peacemaking through acts of compassion and creativity among the young and free. As a nomad at heart, my ‘home’ is wherever I journey with people on the ground and discover life on the frontiers.
