Pastor and Teacher in Ashland, Ohio
I lived the first half of my life seeking to arrive, and now, by grace, I am enjoying the journey.
My life is spent in words: written, spoken, listened to. I love to laugh, but I'm not afraid to weep. I am an encourager and peace-maker. I delight in sharing my aha moments of faith.
The apostle Paul penned the verse that has guided my life: My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ (Colossians 2:2). Peterson in The Message paints it even more invitingly: I want you woven into a tapestry of love.
I also find that I follow quite closely to the thought of Emily Dickenson: I dwell in possibilities.
