About Maury

I grew up in the wheat fields of the Palouse, in Eastern Washington. I loved to traipse across the fields with my dog, Brute, and backpack in the Bitterroot mountains with my dad.

After high school, I majored in music and played french horn professionally with the Boise Philharmonic.

In 1986, I moved to San Francisco to attend Golden Gate Baptist Seminary (now Gateway). I earned a Masters and a Ph.D., but the best thing I got out of these years was my wife, Julie.

In 1991, we moved to Yuba City, California where I pastored my first church. It was a disaster. After six months, it went through a split that tore friends and families apart. From one of the smoking remnants we started River Valley Christian Fellowship. This became the mid-size congregation I pastored for over 20 years.

During these years, I built a house, wrote articles for the local paper, fished the Feather River, made music, grew addicted to road biking, conquered Biblical Greek, became a seminary professor, and had three kids.

In the spring of 2014, I resigned my church. In the fall of 2016, I resigned from seminary. I was dying for a genuine connection with God.

Julie and I now roam the country in our little fiberglass trailer, devoting our lives to Anchorpoint, a home for pilgrims and other lost souls who seek authentic Christian spirituality.

    Dear Maury, your sister, Rebecca, is my next door neighbor at Ananda Community. She very kindly (and wisely) gave to me a copy of your book, Hard Reset. Although my participation in orthodox Christianity (Catholic) ended many decades ago, I never felt I had to recover from anything so much as expand into something more. In any case, I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciate all that you wrote and all that you have gone through and wish for you the very best that divine grace combined with self-effort can produce in the form of soul-satisfaction and divine attunement with the omnipresent Christ. Or put more succinctly: “way to go!” Blessings upon your new life. /s/ Hriman, aka as Terry
