About the author:
In my free time: When I have time, I blog about current affairs and theological issues. With the strength and time God has graciously given to me, I allow myself to be challenged intellectually, make opportunities for continuous learning of Scripture, theology, and practical ministry.
Things I enjoy: a good cup of coffee, exercising at the gym, mountain biking, skating, walking, spending time with my family, reading, pets (cat, fish), and blogging.
What I’m learning: Each day, I am learning to live in God’s grace, peace and power, and always learning to be a good husband, father and a good citizen (sometimes through mistakes).
Where I live: My family has recently moved to the west coast of British Columbia, Canada, where I minister as a chaplain. I am honored to use my life to serve both God and country. Places where I have lived: Victoria, Toronto, Saskatchewan, Vancouver, Virginia Beach, Ottawa–all wonderful places to live.
Thanks for visiting the NewEpistles blog.
Grace and peace to you,
Kevin A. Sam
