The Paul Kitchener Blog Perishes

So, the time has come to eradicate the blog title of "The Paul Kitchener Blog". It had a good run these last two years, but I just got tired of it. Without further ado, I present to you the new name of "The Brilliant Decay". The URL, however, will remain


I thought of the name the other day. It kind of has a spiritual meaning. Nothing too deep. Just the reality that in the process of dying to ourselves (decay), new life increasingly shines through the cracks of the broken individual (brilliant).

I tend to try to keep myself together using sheer willpower, when what I should be doing is accept my fragility and surrender my shortcomings to the God that has none and yet still delights in me. 


"For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses... For when I am weak, then I am strong." 2 Corinthians 12:10

Let's allow our selfish desires and pursuits to decompose, giving way to a glorious new life that puts Another in the limelight. Let's embrace the brilliant decay.
