I was raised a Christian, and lived that way for my whole life. Was a religious education major in college, worked for a few churches along the way.
For me, it was never about doubting or not doubting. I’ve always understood the stories of the Bible to be stories of faith, not not stories of history. I never really bought into the idea that the miracle stories or the supernatural Jesus stories were factual. They are literary tools, used by countless storytellers before, that make a particular point.
From John Steinbeck, East of Eden
Part IV, Chapter 34

My wife got me the coolest Christmas present: a home brew kit. It came with everything I’d need to get started. Even a kool-ade type brew kit.
So began the Black Locust Brewing Company, named after the 100 year old black locust tree that graces our front yard and scares little kids on Halloween.
Since then I’ve been making beer (or making plans to make beer) with all my friends. The kids and I even cooked up a homemade root beer.
