This is a provisional attempt to write a spiritual autobiography in a series of short essays called “Faith and Defiance, the Spiritual Journey of a Religious Rebel.” This new autobiography, divided into short chapters, is not a book of memoirs, but a window into my soul. These thoughts and experiences are not necessarily written in a logical, chronological sequence. They are written as they come to me. So you, my reader, will be thrown in the middle of all this and thus can place these reflections within your own life experience. Eventually, when I publish this series in book form, these disparate insights will be arranged in chronological order.
