~ Personal Profile ~
It’s interesting, but you really don’t think seriously about your life in this way until confronted with a little encouragement, the nudge to write your Personal Descriptive Profile. And I think Believers are challenged not to categorize, as it is that Jesus never defined neighbor; yet, in the process of selection at hand, we subtilize with a résumé of likes and caprices hoped for in a mate. At least that’s the tenor between the lines with profiles I’ve read. I doubt my description will read much different; albeit, I will attempt to be specific without creating an imbalanced view of who I am. And I have to say, it’s apparent that some profiles read like a bootleg copy of inauthenticity. I also realize that written expression isn’t the forte of all. But I imagine cultivating a deep, meaningful relationship. If that’s not your desire, then reading beyond this line will be time lost to you; yet, if your desire is to drink from the deep well, you already know such a source. And deep calls to deep; whether sharing in my life, or sharing in the life of another sojourner that calls out for you.
Here’s the relevant upshot on Andrew: I am profoundly spiritual in the Trinitarian Christian tradition, but by no means a traditionalist, prefering the moniker Christ Follower to Christian. An open, expansive mind - living outside the box - I admit mild disaffection toward the Colonial/Western/American ministry model. Because of this, I have set some lofty future goals. I would relish the opportunity to do ekklesia (church) differently... Jesus as our reference, with ministry central to the grace message given to Paul by revelation (Gal. 1:11, 12). With this in mind, I want to keep some balance, to both live life on purpose, yet take it as it comes without running the treadmill of our performance culture. So when I meet someone (on this site, perhaps), TWO individuals will have their input... I’m not interested in the patriarchal model. It’s an equal partnership of mutual respect and mutual decision making. And that may well mean that I gladly attend the church of my mate’s choice. As a couple, the social aspect of “fellowship” is important.
I enjoy a wide range of music... classical, rock, blues and worship. But I thrive on quiet in the restorative sense. My two front teeth are fake as Hollywood. Thrift stores are a pleasure to me... amazing what one finds discount, when one expects to find it. Quality over quantity is something of a guiding principle. I enjoy live theatre over cinema; fine art over computer generation. I don’t care for television, unless educational or occasional British sitcom. I’m a good communicator and love open forum discussion, but prefer intimate, one-on-one exchange. I’m sensitive - incredibly so - perhaps the definition of empath (sensitive to my mate in every way). It follows that my spiritual giftings align with sensitivity: gift of knowledge/wisdom; intuition; creativity. A pescatarian diet seems healthiest for me (occasional fish), GF (not celiac) and otherwise close to vegan (some exceptions). This is a health decision, not an ethical one. I don’t drink, but I gladly hang out with those who do... it’s not a religious decision. I listen to novels on CD while driving. I have a million weaknesses, including classic ADD. I sometimes carry a 15’ cross I constructed years ago (love walking the cross and sharing good news/pure grace, always seeking to relieve people of all burden of senseless guilt). I’ve worked in various ministry capacities, all of which went nicely, but ended spectacularly bad (politics - ministry is impossible, isn’t it? : -). I’m currently on hiatus, unchurched. I think we are challenged by punching our way out of the box. And yet the box serves its purpose. There’s really no way out, but to live with a little antinomy... that I understand. Simple living: a very rustic cabin in the Ozark mountains, is a choice I’ve made for now (I own about 9ac). My favorite reading genre is spiritual (deeper life titles and 17th century mystics), theology and philosophy (sadly enough, my library got damaged in storage in recent years... but I’m glad for it... it’s great to have a growing bookshelf of new favorite reads). As a slow, prodding reader, my core reading is highly selective... I’m not given to reading a lot of pop-Christian titles. I don’t follow the latest trend.
I hope to meet someone fairly close in age, older is fine. And, I should add here, although married 19 years (divorced now 9 years), having children just didn’t happen. Feel free to inquire about my divorce, or any other questions... I’ll be an open book. Living a bit remote, I’m dependent on dismally slow data, and the occasional hotspot. Give me ample time to respond.
God has faith in us. Read Galatians 2:20 KJV (in this instance, the KJV nicely captures original intention... you’ll see it... scripture best interprets itself).
Some things are inexplicable. We just know.
All blessings in your search...
First date is open for discussion... I think it should be mutually decided.
A good listener, I’m often cerebral, other times finding humor in the absurdity of just about everything. If left to me, a quiet coffee house, comfortably relaxed, would be part of a fun first date. Strong coffee or tea... caffeinated exchange with random reciprocity on a range of topics... and some serious laughter. We would get to know each other that way.
