Here you are at the trail head of my blog and I hope you will enjoy journeying with me for a while! Although I am a runner, I hope not to go too fast for you along the way. The trail head is just a start, and the way frequently branches to address a variety of topics, depending on the direction I feel like going at the moment.
I am a physician (Pediatrician!) working at the intersection of health and justice. My motivation rises from something much deeper. I live where I live and do what I do because I’m compelled by the love of the Beloved Son to be a force for good in the world. I strive to be a conduit of the Kingdom so that a bit of Heaven may crash into a small part of our Earth. I’ve lived in Asia for over 10 years – starting in Thailand, and now in China – striving to work for justice wherever I see it lacks. This has taken on several different areas of focus over the years, but the underlying theme of justice and health – served with mercy, grace, and love – has remained constant.
I do try to live a well-rounded and holistic life, which takes me on all sorts of adventures such as back-country camping, ultra-marathons, outdoors-y activities, cooking (which CAN be adventurous!) and travels to interesting places near and far.
“From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.” Ps 61:2
