I’ve been a Washington Capitals fan since 2005, and have decided to jump headfirst into the Caps’ blogosphere. Not that I expect to be any good at it–I just need my own little corner of the Web to write stuff that I can’t say on the Caps message boards.
My approach to the game is more of a spiritual one. I know that’s going to make for a very peculiar mix–hockey and religion? Huh?–but to me, you can’t check God at the door when you walk into the rink. Show me a scary-looking injury at a hockey game, and I’ll show you a couple thousand people praying all at once.
My spiritual background is complex: I was raised a Southern Baptist, moved over to an evangelical church in Baltimore, and have not yet found a spiritual home in DC. I have a very strong connection with angels, and have been trained as a spiritual healer. That puts me in no-man’s land: I’m not exactly comfortable in a metaphysics/new age setting, but I know I’d better not discuss my healing skills at a mainstream Christian church.
So all I can really do is write about it…and maybe, just maybe, try to find some higher truth in the sport I’ve come to love so much.
Thanks for stopping by, and be blessed.
THIS IS WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT
