I'm a native of California, but the highways of life have led me to Japan, where I've lived for the past four years. My wife is Japanese, and we are the parents of three growing and energetic children.
As regards my faith background, in my childhood I was raised within a moderately liberal Protestant denomination, and I was baptized at the age of 12. Later in my teens though my search for truth led my beliefs more in the direction of eastern religions and mystical teachings. At age 19 I encountered and was deeply moved by the teachings and life of Reverend Sun Myung Moon, and have been a Unification Church member since that time.
It's my hope through this forum to be able to share about my own faith with any who might be searching in some way, and to dialogue about religious faith, spirituality and life with those interested. Whether it's with those who share my own faith, or have another or none, I'm interested in friendships with sincere, conscientious people, regardless of age, nationality, or whatever classification.
Thanks for taking the time to read this over, and ... I hope to hear from you soon!
