My self-summary
i am an enigma. I consider myself a Christian, but not all of my beliefs and experiences fit into a traditional Christian framework. I am kind of a mystic, and have found truth in many different religions. I try to be social-justice oriented, and I would like to find someone who shares a passion for the poor and oppressed in our society. I am opposed to any killing of human beings, including war and capital punishment. I believe the Spirit of God is in all things, and am trying to cut down on how much meat i eat. I believe in living simply, but have been known to splurge. I am also not a "typical" guy; I am very much in touch with my feminine side, and if this is a problem, we probly aren't a good match. (That said, I am still very much heterosexual, attracted to women not men; and I do know how to take charge when I need to.) While this all sounds pretty serious, I am actually very fun-loving and socially liberal. While I usually date Christians, I am open to dating people of other faiths if we have enough in common. I love animals, especially squirrels. I am many things at once, and I think you would enjoy getting to know me.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a musician and a writer. I play in a band called Streaking in Tongues. I have a blog at godoftheodd.wordpress.com. I work odd jobs to keep my bills paid. I would like to teach religion/theology at a church or college/university someday. Also exploring the possibility of some other kind of ministry (probly not an ordained pastor, but we'll see).
I’m really good at
music, writing, philosophy, teaching, word games, etc. I have also been told i'm a pretty good kisser ;).

The six things I could never do without
in no particular order - love, music, God, friends/family, nature, writing.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how I can connect with God

what I can do to help the poor and lonely

why it's so rare to find people who are open about both their spirituality and sexuality

finding that "special someone" - if it can ever happen again.
On a typical Friday night I am
Varies. Sometimes I am at home reading or watching a movie, sometimes I am out at a bar or club with some friends, sometimes I am playing a show or recording with my band. I usually like to do something social.
