I'm getting a tattoo.
That's probably a weird way to start a blog. This is my first entry, so I'll introduce myself. I'm Pastor Aaron. Good. Done. Now. I'm getting a tattoo.
I've wanted a tattoo for a long time, but haven't known what to get. I suppose that's a weird thing to say also. So, let me put it this way: When I was growing up, I was the good kid, generally obeying rules and being courteous and never really coloring outside the lines. Like most young people, I had a bit of a rebellious streak, but I kept it well under wraps. But it informs parts of my personality, like the passion I feel around combating racism, for example. And every once in a while, it claims its own voice, which is why I have a earring, and why I dye my hair a crazy color occasionally like I did for the Youth Gathering this summer. And now, why I'm getting a tattoo.
