Gene Redlin blogs at a piece of e-real estate known as Northern Gleaner. Gene was one of the earlier blog connections that I had when I started blogging, and has become a friend. One thing about Gene is that he's quite unique and doesn't fit "the box." Whatever box that is.
Gene lives in the Chicago area and is originally from North Dakota, and has a special heart for the prairie. He has an interesting church background with a bit Lutheran and some charismatic influences. Gene proclaims himself to be a prophet. I've been in exclusively "cessationist" churches (that all sign and related gifts are no longer being used by God), so my friends that have that view might not understand what Gene means by the prophetic. Gene has strong opinions on many things and it shows in his writing. His friendship in my own navigation of things church has been invaluable. Read Gene at Northern Gleaner.
