New UptownChicago.Rocks

What in the world?

Nearly 6 months ago I became a believer in Jesus Christ. This truly has been the most amazing thing to happen to me in my entire life of 60 years.

I also moved into the intentional community of Jesus People USA. To say the least, my thinking is new. Though much of the ‘old’ UptownChicago.Rocks was good citizen-based journalism, I decided to erase it and start blogging on a blank slate.

In many ways I feel God has prepared me in advance for this new life in Christ. The value of the struggles and experiences in my life has become clearer and clearer.

What you won’t see is pressure-evangelism or better than thou attitudes. Both I detest; don’t run away yet, ha!

This new blog version, together with its Facebook page/group will concentrate heavily on mostly local music, with some politics, news and personal reflections of mine thrown in.
