This blog began in the summer of 2003 when a friend insisted that I should start one. I’ve been blessed by the love of a wonderful family: Diane . . . Matt (a physician in Abilene), Jenna, Reese, Ellie, and Miles . . . and Chris (a graduate student at ACU). And of course, the memories of Megan (1984-1994) still surround us. I love guacamole and fajitas, baseball, Lord of the Rings, Princess Bride, Jimmy Buffett, the Allman Brothers Band, Neil Young, the Eagles, the Zoe group, the Cardinals, fresh seafood, hiking, cycling, triathloning, etc. I am living evidence of God’s patient pursuit. I enjoy my work as Senior Minister for the Golf Course Road Church in Midland and as Director of Ministry Outreach for Pepperdine University in Malibu.
