To Be A Pilgrim is a blog still honing its niche. It’s not a place to find political commentary, though we are for the Fair Tax. It’s not a place to find banality, though we do think that square-dancing tractors and Victor Borge can be causes for holy laughter. It’s not a place where skepticism and relativism have any sort of foothold, but that’s not to say we have all the answers.
Ryan is the headmaster of Jonathan Edwards Classical Academy in Nashville, TN. He intends to purchase the Detroit Tigers some day.
Ryan and Christie met in 1st grade. They spent a lot of time together since Christie’s brother and Ryan were best friends through much of their schooling. After graduating from college, they dated for a month and decided that they should get married, which they did 1999. After a series of happy adventures together–and now four future men and one future woman (Karsten, Haddon, Lincoln, Knox and Claire–whom we call Bear)–they are now five years into their first major steps out into the deep by moving away from all that was familiar and comfortable to that which is strange and unknown. They are hopeful pioneers, and pioneers don’t use pavement.
If you put them all seven of them together and asked them to respond, the Boomershines would mostly agree on the following favorite activities and hobbies including Saturday morning soccer games, exploring Nashville, bookstores, the Pilgrims, orange juice, restaurants, God-centeredness, antique books, the Jesus Story Book Bible, exploring woooded areas carrying long sticks, Narnia, and missionaries. Some may have been missed, but that is at least a good start.
You can email Ryan at this address (RyBoom@gmail.com) if you have a question or just need to unload your guns.
