About me

Gender MALE
Location Sacramento, CA, United States
Introduction I've been a poet since childhood. In high school, a philosophical journey led me from doubt into an ever-deepening faith in Christ. In 1971, I married Rosemary, still the loveliest woman on earth. God blessed us with 12 children and a growing number of grandchildren. Between graduation from Bible College (1972) and before nursing school, I served 2 years with Gospel Outreach in Northern California and 3 years with Youth With a Mission in Quebec. After getting an M.A. in "Cross-Cultural Studies" in 1988 and later becoming a Wesleyan minister, I've been pastor of a retirement community church started in 1996. With retirement from nursing after 34 years (08/2015)—24 of them in L&D—my goals are to keep on preaching, writing poetry and prose, doing artwork, and taking gentle, flat-land hiking (strolls) with Rosemary.
