“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—I took the one less traveled by. And that has made all the difference.”
Robert Frost’s poem The Road Not Taken has been debated since being published in 1915. Was Frost advocating following unusual paths, literal and figurative? Or did he express regret for having missed the other choice? Frost himself–perhaps recognizing the value of controversy–never clarified.
Regardless, Kit and I are about to take a “less traveled” path–one made more uncertain by an unknown destination. My nature relishes setting out on an unpredictable journey. Fortunately, I married Kit who has a high tolerance for uncertain adventure. This quality has helped us be effective in ministry around the world.
Our house sells on Thursday. Then we’ll set out homeless during a pandemic. You won’t find a much “less traveled” path than that. We may not be able to blog regularly for several months. Please continue to follow us, though, and with us see what happens. Whatever our journey entails will certainly qualify for, “And that has made all the difference.”
You can always reach us through our website where this blog is posted.
In Our Lord,
