Joined 6 years ago from Hershey, Pa.




Also follow me on:

I was born in San Francisco in 1954 and moved to Pennsylvania when I was ten. I married my high school sweetheart after falling hard for her the first time I saw her . . . as I more and more came to recognize she was just as beautiful in her heart and mind as she was beautiful to look at, I began to fall head-over-heels in love with her. I dropped out of high school in 10th grade and we married quite young - we have six children, and so far twelve grandchildren, and I love her more today than ever.

I became a Christian on my own in my late teens . . . no one was 'witnessing' to me, I had never been and was not currently in any church, etc, I simply began to read the Dhammapada, Koran, Bhagavad Gita, Apocrypha, and the Bible, etc. At first I read it like one might read Jules Verne or a Green Lantern comic book . . . I wasn't looking for truth nor was I dissatisfied with my life - I just found it interesting. Almost from the beginning the Bible struck me as not like the other texts, there was something genuinely otherworldly about it. However, I kept coming to things I could not 'get'. I understood the words and the sentences made sense to me, but I wasn't seeing the point, I was missing what the message was and I couldn't figure it out. When I read that this book was written by God's own Spirit and that only through His Spirit could anyone understand it, I very simply and directly asked God "If there's anything in this book you want me to know, you're going to have to show it to me because I'm not getting it".

Being so unchurched and unfamiliar with any sort of religious practice, I wasn't even thinking I was praying, just asking God for help. Very suddenly, instantly, I read passages I had read dozens of times before, but they now seemed to be perfectly clear and made exquisite sense. Ideas I was reading connected in my head with other ideas from other passages I had read weeks earlier but only now made sense . . . everything seemed to fit together and it all seemed beautiful, desirable, and profound.

As I understood that the message was calling me to trust in Jesus alone as my only hope, that there was nothing in me or about me that God could fellowship with, I happily did . . . I experienced a dramatic conversion there in my bedroom and I have never doubted that God was dealing with me, that He had adopted me as His own before I was born and that He was bringing me unto Himself that night. What I saw that day is that Jesus of Nazareth, who was killed and buried 2,000 years ago, is alive and He is the only mediator between God and man and that His truth is revealed to us in His word, the Bible.

After a year or so of studying only the Bible exclusively I began to investigate church history and then theology. Eventually, my wife and I became, through the years, involved with several small, start-up, congregations. Eventually I was ordained a deacon in the Presbyterian Church In America (PCA), though I am not currently affiliated with any PCA congregation.
