Brian Sandifer-b&wMy name is Brian Sandifer.  I’m a husband, father, and pastor.  I like to spend time with my family, read, and write about my life, especially how Jesus Christ is drawing me into himself and the life of his Church.  I like to do lots of other things that pretty much everyone likes to do.  If you don’t know me, that’s all you need to know to understand the purpose of Dangitbill!

And then there’s the elephant in the room.  What’s the deal with the title “Dangitbill!”?  When I was in college, I lived with a few guys, including my friend Bill.  Bill was so loveable and so “pickable” that we all teased him, blaming Bill for whatever was currently wrong at hand.  “The dishwasher broke again?  Dangitbill!”  “I got a C on my Chemistry exam?  Dangitbill!”  “That the fifth time I’ve seen this commercial since the movie started…Dangitbill!”  Since all of us were also thoughtful Christians, we decided that “Dangitbill!” was an apt word for expressing the angst we all feel in a sinful, broken world.  Call it sophomoric theology.  Anyway, “Dangitbill!” became a mantra, and a nickname for that particular group of friends.  So my blog is a homage to Bill, my college roommates (try to guess which one is Bill), everyone who called us collectively “Dangitbill!”, and to all who still look forward to the kingdom of God from the wilderness (Revelation 21:1-8).

    Hello! I came across your Westminster Catchecism flashcards in a web search. Would you be willing to share the file with me so that I could add pictures to the flashcards for my 3 & 4 year olds. We’ve started memorizing, but I think little pictures would help them. Thanks so much!

    Hi Brian, I came across your blog while searching wordpress for blogs that write about Intelligent Design. We’re trying to get the word out about a new book called, “God & the World of Insects.” Biola Professor and Christian Apologist J.P. Moreland highly recommends the book and calls it “amazing and encouraging.” You can find more out at LampionPress.com (the publisher) or amazon.com in the info and reviews. It is our prayer that the book provides more encouragement for those believers with science questions, and that it helps open the hearts and minds of those skeptical of the Christian faith. We’d appreciate any shout out on your blog. Grace and Peace, Josh
