Hello! My name is David Bates and I’m an Englishman living in San Diego, California.
The title of this blog is “This Restless Pilgrim” and it describes well how I’ve felt over the last few years. These years have certainly been interesting ones, filled with uncertainty, adventure, frustration, heartbreak and excitement. I moved to London for the first time and moved around a lot before ultimately leaving England and travelling 5,489 miles away to live in the United States.
Living a rather rootless life like this tends to teach you some important life lessons and the whole experience has left me with the feeling that they should be shared. These are some of the things I will be sharing on this blog.
The other thing I will be writing extensively about will be apologetics. Over the last few years I have also found myself increasingly called upon to explain and defend Christianity in general and Catholicism in particular.
Please feel free to comment on any of my posts or send me an email.
So thanks for stopping by…enjoy!
