2008 Intro

My original About page, published July 4, 2008, on the eve of my departure for South Africa:

Hey, thanks for visiting my blog, Free Spirit Runner.  I’m Andy, a junior at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and proud graduate of Phillips High School up in Phillips, Wisconsin.  Although I thought about writing a blog for a while, I started this blog primarily to create a clearinghouse for information about my study abroad experience in Cape Town with Marquette’s South Africa Service Learning Program.  I will be trying to update it every couple days and also post some pictures now that I actually have a camera.  As a somewhat opinionated young man with a much too high opinion of myself, I will probably also be posting my thoughts on various theological and political issues, especially as my current beliefs interact with my South African experiences.  I invite you to run alongside me on this five-month journey of discovery, reflection, and transformation.

God bless,                      

Andy
