Welcome to Theology Bear.

I created this site on the advice of my priest, Father Phil, in order to explore Orthodox Christianity and to chronicle my journey.

I am from Mesa, Arizona and have lived here my whole life. I graduated from ASU (Go Devils!) with a bachelor’s in English Literature and a minor in Social Justice. Currently I am a student at Colorado Christian University, pursuing a masters degree in counseling.

I attend Saint Katherine’s Greek Orthodox Church and was chrismated into the church on November 13th, 2015.

Prior to Saint Katherine’s I attended Redemption Church in Gilbert and spent many years at Red Mountain Community Church in Mesa.

I hope you enjoy reading along and that your own faith is deepened as you read about my struggles and confusion.

One quick note. This site is not a site to debate me on what I believe, I have come to terms with what I believe. Please feel free to ask me questions, and I will do my best to give or find an answer.

Christ have mercy.
