i had the fantastic opportunity to shoot a wedding for a dear and wonderful person. my coworker and friend, cheyanne. if you know me, you know i used to be a christian in the strictest terms. i broke free of those chains about 5 or 6 years ago. ive learned more alot about religion in those 6 years than when i was a christian, especially my personal religion. i have a hard time conversing with christians because i know where they're coming from, especially when they don't really listen to my point of view. i used to do the same...pray while theyre talking, not really listen to them, as if their story would steer me from the truth i knew in my heart - that this could be false, everything i had built my life around. ken harper got me thinking. that and a book called Blue Like Jazz...christianity can be different. Cheyanne proves that fact to me. she shows love and understanding, the real kind. i see a realistic christianity in her, one i could come back to one day. one based on love.
thank you cheyanne for loving me.
