We project who we are in ways that we do not realize.

Greetings Dear Reader,

For those of you who do not know it, my pen name comes from the main character in the first story I wrote when I was eight. I had newly discovered writing and spent an entire Christmas break hammering away on an ancient Underwood typewriter. The character I created was a holy knight. I did not yet know the word, Paladin.

A Paladin is a knight. They proceed from the twelve trusted knights of the court of Charlamagne. Aramis Thorn, the mythical paladin has grown over the years and his story now covers three long novels yet to be published. For the purpose of this writing, we need to understand that in fantasy literature a Paladin is a knight sworn to valor and chivalry. He serves a deity and all that he does must align with that deity’s code of faith and practice.

In return for his faithfulness, the Paladin is gifted with auras of protection. These radiate from him just because of who he is. Anyone within the aura is safe from whatever the aura provides. They can be things such as protection from fear, the undead, or even provide a blessing. I will not delve too deeply into that but I think you take my meaning.

What I wish to explore is the relationship between those who follow Christ and the things they should project just because of that. We all project who we are. I want to be sure that what I project is that which precedes from Christ that draws and protects others. I have no hope of being good enough to be considered a holy knight. I can, however, radiate the things that Christ is building in me.

Please travel a little way with me as we ponder the aura we can provide for the sake of others out of love and compassion. The purpose is to learn what we are to provide for others simply because of who we are. As we follow Christ more closely, he will be more evident and what we are becoming will be more visible. As his cousin, John said, Dear Reader, “He must increase and I must decrease.” As always will be the case, your thoughts and questions are welcome.

Wishing you joy in the journey,

Aramis Thorn

Every human story is part of the great story that leads to the Father getting everything back to Good.
