Micah on Micah.



There are a lot of new folks here, so I thought I'd take a second to properly introduce myself. My name is Micah.

I'm from Alabama. I went to Ole Miss. I married a gal from North Carolina and therefore I've got a basketball school. We moved North, to Boston. We have a two year old daughter who will just about melt your heart.

I love Jesus, though I spend way more time thinking about myself and my family than bringing his Kingdom to earth. I need to work on that. I love bourbon, and I spend way more time talking about that than I should. I occasionally over-imbibe. I need to work on that.

I started Old Try because I always felt that I was a mutt from Alabama and the rest of the world saw us Southerners as slow and backwards and that there was a truth about home and a beauty about our part of the country that was misrepresented. I wanted to show how proud of her I was.

That pride is checked when I see, from a distance, how hurtful she can be in her politics, her economic disparity, her misrepresentations of the Gospel of Grace. She can be strong, but she can be cruel.

I feel that I'm a good representation of my home. There's a duality that battles against itself every day. I just try to win more of those battles than I lose.
