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!!

The memories are there. I have so many memories about being called to lay down or fight. I recall time at St. Luke's. You make mistakes and wonder if person's will let their knee off your neck. Then I go forward a loner, unsure that even my best can be good enough. Time will tell

I am glad for another day. I actually made over 55 thousand. Go figure. I trust God will be with me. About 4 more hours to go. I am tired, I am surviving. I am glad that God is with me!!!

Covid madness will be culminated in being tested with the result determining how much I work. Maybe God is giving me a message. Time will tell

I have a monster headache. It is all about working too much. I am tired and worn. Now the question becomes can I keep my wits about me for ten days. We will see.

Before I answer that question, let .e consider my body is a map displaying trauma both visible and invisible. By the grace of God my suffering is a gift. The same suffering Jesus used to redeem and give hope is suffering that lead others to a better place. The temptation is to take away suffering. Jesus did not do that. We were shown how to use it to the glory of God.

Sleep is fleeting. There is so much to do and little time to do it. Christmas depresses as more and more die. A vaccine is on the horizon and yet we are faced with the cure being as dangerous as the cure. Where is faith if it does not lead us to a better appreciation of God and other people.

The Patriots are officially awful. They can not do anything. It is painful. It is Christmas. No room in the inn, so what if anything can be redeemed.
