Matt jumpingHi, I’m Matthew. I’m a sojourner in this atmosphere, headed for my homeland, trying to figure out how to live “life under the sun,” as Solomon called it. I’m a husband, a dad, a pastor, a musician, a thinker, a writer, but most of all I’m a disciple of the Man called Jesus.

This blog is my reflection on life on this place called Earth, life lived as a disciple. I believe that this atmosphere is not our home, but we must live here, thrive here, until the day we breathe a different atmosphere (Rev. 21:1).

Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). The pursuit of that more abundant life is the theme of this blog. Read, reflect, share, discuss. The abundant life in this atmosphere, and in the next, is lived in community.

The abundant life is also lived in authenticity. We’re all on a journey; none of us has arrived at the destination yet, and none of us has all the answers about how to get there, either. But as disciples of Jesus we are following the One who knows the destination and the way there.

Jesus said, “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32). “I am the way and the truth and the life” (John 14:6).
