I’m a 50-something. I enjoy life in a variety of ways and I’m easy going and not hard to please. Writing is one of my favorite hobbies, and I enjoy writing about what’s going on in my world, which is mainly stuff about faith and life. As far as faith goes, well, I am a Christian and have been since placing my faith in Christ in 1979. I attended and was involved in Southern Baptist churches from the time I can remember, but about 18 months ago began attending a small church affiliated with the Christian and Missionary Alliance, of which I am now a member. That was a result of geography as much as personal choice, though ironically, both of my parents came to Christ in a CMA church. There are very few differences in theology, the basic difference is in local church governance, and in connection to the local district of the denomination. There are not nearly as many Southern Baptist churches in Pennsylvania as there were in Texas, and with the weather here, involvement depends a lot on location. I still consider my connections to Southern Baptists as strong, and am still a licensed and ordained Southern Baptist minister.
I’m realizing a lifelong career ambition in ministry, serving as head administrator of a small Christian school.
I love spending time with my wife, playing with my dog, and the excitement of the “Friday night lights” at a high school football game. I grew up in the West, in Arizona, left in the early 80’s after college, and I’ve spent most of my years since then in Southeast Texas. Now, I live in Western Pennsylvania, a big change from all of that, but looking forward to the time I spend here.
I hope you enjoy the blog as much as I like writing it. You’ll find, I hope, that I’m not perfect, and well aware of that fact, that I don’t have all of the answers, I will respect your opinion even if I strongly disagree with it, I don’t like labels or “boxes,” and I don’t always line up with expectations.
