Welcome to Ho Kai Paulos!

It seems appropriate to begin with the source of my blog's name. In Acts 13:9, the Greek reads "Saulos ho kai Paulos" or "Saul, also called Paul". One of the greatest compliments I've received in my life was being likened to Paul, someone whom the light of Christ completely transformed. It is also one of the most humbling statements made to me, and something I want to continue remembering each day I post here.

Its important to to recall what is happening in that part of the book of Acts. When someone stands between Paul and preaching the Word to those who want it, he speaks, full of the Holy Spirit, "...you enemy of all righteousness, full of all deceit and villainy, will you not stop making crooked the straight paths of the Lord?"
