I’ve never been mugged, but, believe it or not, I’d like to be. I know, I know. I must be crazy, right? That might be true, but hear me out. You see, I love New York City. I’m head-over-heels infatuated with the Big Apple. I travel there whenever I can, which is never often enough. I worked in Manhattan for about a year. Unfortunately, I was too distracted by what might happen. I was just a tad hypervigilant. Violence is known to erupt quite randomly, in big cities and small towns, striking wherever and whenever we least expect it. So if I could just get mugged, that’s one less thing I’d have to worry about. Then I could relax and take in the city. Besides, everyone has a great I got mugged story but me.

I am a Christian in recovery following four decades of active addiction. I have a B.S. in Psychology and an M.A. in Theological Studies from Colorado Christian University, and I will be pursuing an M.A. in Divinity at Denver Seminary in May 2021. My focus is on evangelism and apologetics, doctrinal studies, and working with individuals struggling with mental health and substance abuse issues. To me, there is no "higher power" than Jesus Christ, who broke the chain of addiction in my life. I will be seeking a position as a prison chaplain and/an associate or teaching pastor upon completing my MDiv. I am currently looking for a position at a drug and alcohol rehab, where I intend to work during the three-year master's program at Denver Seminary. I believe in the power in the Name of Jesus to break every chain. I believe counseling must include discipline, and discipling must include counseling. View all posts by The Accidental Poet
