Blogs I Love: Rogue Priest, Andre Solo

I like reading good blogs, but to be honest, I don't really read many blogs because I'm picky.  About four or so years ago, I was searching for something new to read, and generally when I search for new blogs, I search for religion or spirituality blogs.  It doesn't matter if it's about Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Paganism, Heathenry, New Age, or whatever.  I like to read about religion and how people apply it to their daily lives, even in a non-Christian context.  I'm secure enough in my own beliefs that reading about another religion doesn't cause me to have doubts about my own.

So anyway, I was searching for a good blog about religion and somehow happened upon Rogue Priest .  The author, Andre Solo, is a writer, philosopher, and polytheist priest who is traveling through the Americas in search of the divine.  When he first started the blog, he was still in the planning stages of his journey, and reading about what he wanted to do was so interesting that I was hooked.

Andre started his journey through the Americas in Minnesota and is traveling each part of his journey solely on the power of his own body, via biking (primarily), walking, and some canoeing.  That's not to say he hasn't been in cars, buses, trains, or planes at all during the past three years, but if he's actively advancing towards South America, he's doing it by bike.

I honestly can't say enough good things about Rogue Priest and Andre.  This is a man who is willing to test his faith, actively seek it out, and adjust his beliefs according to what he experiences on his journey.  Though he and I don't share the same faith or beliefs, I have found that there are several things he has written about that fit quite easily into a Christian context.  If you enjoy travel blogs and don't care that it's heavily infused with religion and spirituality, you will adore this blog.  Andre describes all the places he travels to and provides some great pictures along the way.
