I am originally from Ohio but I and my wife Cindy now live between Lincoln and Capitan, New Mexico. I was first introduced to Jesus at age 11 but did not really start to walk with Him until I was 25. Since that time (with the exception of a few years off for bad behavior), I have studied His Word intensely, committing myself to find Him and follow after Him no matter what the cost. The long strange trip of my life has proven costly in many ways, but the treasure in Christ which I have gained is not worth comparing to the light and momentary afflictions which have been the milestones on my spiritual journey.

The sum of our life is to be found in our relationships - to God and to one another.
It is better to be led than to be fed. He who feeds you a meal fills you for a moment, but he who leads you to green pastures where you can feed yourself gives you your life.
Ekklesia or Church will be (God willing) a book soon. These essays, which have been edited and updated, are about the "church" and the ekklesia and they are a timely message to everyone who is seeing the shallowness, the error and the insanity of "church" life and who want to know the truth about being the body of Christ, the ekklesia.
The Gospel transcends our culture - though many "Christians" seem unable to recognize this truth. Unless our message calls our culture and society to account, we have a "different gospel."
There's always something that just doesn't quite fit into the major categories.
