If you are on this page then it seems likely you know me. However, for those odd and interesting creatures that lurk on the Internet reading random blogs about theology I am David Smith. I have studied theology at a seminary level and I have been both fascinated and repulsed by this thing we call Christianity. This is my blog and it is a place for me to sort out my thoughts and hopefully interact with the world around me as I consider the thought and practice of my religious heritage. If it is also your religious heritage, welcome, I hope you are challenged and inspired by what you find here. If it is not your religious heritage, welcome! I hope that you also are challenged and inspired, I also hope that here is a place for you to be exposed to not only what Christianity is but what I believe it was intended to be. I hope that this is a place for people to discover our great and compassionate God.
