One man's journey to find the way home
          I am an American Baptist ordained minister. I began my life journey in Massachusetts, where I was called to help people understand what it meant to know a loving God. The call came during a time when I was wrestling with how to help my brother Kurt, who was diagnosed with Schizophrenia during my high school years. I was a new Christian by my senior year following trying to understand what it meant for me to care about a person like my brother who others tended to stay away from.
          After twenty three years in Massachusetts, God sent me to the land of Kansas City where I spent about 35 years of my life. I was a pastor, a resident chaplain, a supervisor in training and most recently a caregiver and security. Everything I have done vocationally has been with God in mind. That does not mean that I am totally comfortable with all the movings of the Spirit.
          I am now in Erie where I do not know very many people. I came here because of my wife. She is from Erie and coming here was the right thing to do. It just plain made sense. My kids had grown up. I did not like Kansas city in terms of climate and was looking forward to a change. I had become very frustrated vocationally and longed to come to Erie to get a second opinion, because I honestly believed that was what God had wanted for me. I left behind kids and grandkids who I loved!!!! I had two jobs that I enjoyed. They were both very appreciative of my skills and I was making more money with the two jobs than I ever had. I heard more than once. ARE YOU CRAZY?
          Well I can only say that I am in love with God's leading. I am starting all over again. It has not been easy. Maybe some of you can offer me some words of support. I am lonely despite the fact my wife is with me. She battles depression and has two siblings that are having similar battles. When it is all said I am in a depressed community with a depressed wife and her family. So I begin the conversation....
WELCOME!!

I am facing lots of crises. It is somewhere between Christ and crosses to bear. I spent hours getting our phones fixed only to be faced with the dictates of authority. God give me strength to lean on Christ, bear my crosses, knowing crises never end

I am who I am and that should get me just far enough. I am the least part weary today. It is time to look at the many battles and decide which ones are worth the fight. After all I am who I am and little or nothing will change that. Why waste the effort?

No time for sleep. It was a long night. Work is getting crazier, clearly no fun. I need to look at options. In Gods time it will make sense. Right now no sense

I don't know who I am fooling. I miss my wife and it does not feel like she is coming back. She isore and more different. I can only recall a love that brought us together
