saunterings | essays, poems, and remarks, all lost with a purpose
This blog is an exploration of religion, social welfare, culture, and identity. It’s what I call “saunterings.” The verb, to saunter, usually connotes a slow stroll. But it’s a holy kind of stroll: the word’s origins derive from French pilgrimages to the “holy land,” or “a la sainte terre,” during the middle ages. Here chronicles my own pilgrimage to find something holy in the monotony of this silly little life. And it’s my hope not to saunter alone but to be joined on the journey by family and friends alike.
While working with the Peace Corps in rural Morocco, where I began this little writing experiment, I was required to place a statement on my blog that is still relevant, though I’ve edited the original slightly:
The contents and commentary found on this weblog are solely my own and do not reflect any positions of the United States Government, the United States Peace Corps, the institutional church, the academy, or any other organization which I have associated myself with, past or present.
