"What's in a name?"
Well, I've finally done it. I started a blog of my own.
First of all, no, I'm not underage (as Rick pointed out). I actually just entered my "mid-twenties" - a season of life that, according to my friend Matthew Greydanus, begins at age 24 and continues through age 27 or 28.
My last name is Amos, a name that I share with one of the so-called Minor Prophets of the Hebrew Bible. "I'm not a prophet nor the son of a prophet, but a simple shepherd and gardener - and yet the Lord told me to prophesy" (7.14f, paraphrase). So, there's that.
In addition, my background has included a good deal of music, particularly classical guitar, and all you guitarists know the beauty of A minor. I hope this blog will do justice to its name - despite the fact that I'm not doing much with music (or prophecy) at present. One of these days....
