Married to Laura, with three adult children, 7 grandchildren. I’m an avid baseball fan, and I enjoy listening to audiobooks about military history, and reading Theology. I was ordained a Baptist pastor and served two churches over a 41 year period. After a three year hiatus I'm glad to be serving at Calvary Bible Fellowship Church in Coopersburg, PA. And I’m glad you stopped by!

      1. Thanks. There’s so much good reading available online. I don’t check hundreds of sites, but the ones I watch generally have good articles. I had too many to list this past Monday so I’ll put some more up on Wednesday. I recently returned to ministry, and while it’s part time, I haven’t had time for writing original material. I’m going to share your site with my modest readership on Wednesday or Friday. Thanks for the work you do on that!!!

      2. Indeed. Lots of good stuff out there but since we are limited we can only go and pick the ones we really like. Thank you for your plan to feature me. I already featured you over a listacle on my blog.
