Slightly Longer Description of TerraX
Terra Extraneus is a discussion of culture and politics written by two Christians evangelicals who are political independents. The blog, authored by Rod Heggy and Terry Hull, was launched on December 23, 2005. “Terra Extraneus” is Latin for “strange world.” On this blog, we offer our opinions — sometimes serious, sometimes less so — about the strange world in which we live.
Rod Heggy is an attorney who has also served as a pastor. Terry Hull is a pastor who has also worked as a newspaper reporter, magazine editor and paralegal. We are both evangelical Christians, meaning that we believe Jesus is the living Son of God and our Lord and Savior. But don’t be too quick to pigeonhole our personalities or our politics based on that confession. We may surprise you.
We first met in our teenage days as members of the youth groups of sister churches. Soon we crossed paths a second way as high school speech and debate competitors. We have been friends ever since, and partners on numerous projects during our adult lives. The Terra Extraneus blog is the next logical step in a lifetime of collaboration.
Actually, we have already been having this discussion between ourselves for years. Through Terra Extraneus, we invite you to listen in — and to add your own comments, if you wish.
