Hello, I'm Shane!

A little about me...

I'm just a white Evangelical who is still learning what love entails. I'm a husband to one, older brother to eight, and a friend to many people whom I hold dear. I have a Bachelors degree in biblical and theological studies from Judson University (Elgin, IL) and I hope that my experiences will be a comfort and a guiding light to others.

A little about my blog...

Pain and Silence is my attempt to explain some of my past and current experiences in a way that highlights the deeply personal nature of theology. My prayer is that it reaches those who, like me, have gone through a crisis of faith and offers them new and helpful ways to understand and worship the Trinitarian God. Most of all, I hope it reveals a God who is not silently watching from a distant throne, but is so intimately with us that he makes our words his own.

“Trample! It was to be trampled on by people that I was born into this world. It was to share humanity’s pain that I carried my cross.”
— Silence by Shusaku Endo
