Sharing Thoughts & Insights

Thank you for taking the time to visit my web page where I reflect on things past and things current in ministry, belief, theology and being the Church.  The reflections I make are borne out of my recollection of 72 years of life growing up on a dairy farm, serving smaller congregations, living in small towns and Chicago suburbs, and now, retired.  The Lord has been good to me and I am living a blessing-filled life.  In writing these articles and reflections, I am hopefully giving something back.  I hope that my experiences and insights can trigger like thoughts in you so that you too can grow in your appreciation for the presence of God and the blessing of love and grace in His Son, Jesus Christ. 

Peace and joy to you from God our loving parent and Jesus Christ, God's Son and our Lord and Savior!  May the Holy Spirit be your strength and counsel.  Praise the Lord!
