About this Blog


This is a blog about the Christian life written by and for practicing Christians. The discipled life is a journey into the Mystery of God – we are always on the way, and always beginning again. We are all in different places, in life and on the Way: we can learn from each other, and should approach both life and each other with humility and humor.

This blog is an attempt to create a place where Christians can grow together and deepen our faith in and relationship with our Christ. No one can know the Father except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. All we know of God we see in Jesus of Nazareth. HE is the way that leads to the father; the door to eternal life, the Eternal Word made flesh who dwelt among us, and whose Spirit abides with us until the end of the ages.

We learn from Him, and we learn from the Spirit. Together we can develop the practices of discipleship that we must have if we are to be successful students of the One Teacher of All. Here we will explore all this together, and have fun doing so. The task is daunting – but His grace is sufficient. Without that grace we can do nothing, but with it we cannot fail.

Pastor Richard Hasselbach is the principal author of this blog. He holds a B.A. in Philosophy (magna cum laude) from Siena College, his M.Div. is from the Washington Theological Union, and he holds a J.D. (magna cum laude) from Boston College Law School, and a Ph.D. from Fordham University.  Pastor Rich is currently Pastor of Christ Community Church in Pompano Beach, Florida. Previously he was pastor of the Clarkstown Reformed Church in West Nyack, New York.

We hope others will join him in reflecting on the practices and principles of discipleship.

Thanks for visiting, please come often, and pray for us.
