I guess when people start describing themselves they usually start with what they do. I know that was my temptation. I suppose telling you I am a pastor is a small start towards describing who I am, but I warn you while the world at large would like to lump clerics into one big ball, we and our families are as varied as the snowflakes that fall during a New England Nor’Easter.
My wife, Tina, and I were married young, had three children naturally and adopted another. During our marriage we have worked in restraunts, newspapers, schools, and group homes ( Oh yeah and churches). We’ve done foster care for children and we have opened our home to the developmentally disabled. We’ve lived with my parents, her parents, and had parents live with us. We’ve lived with one bathroom for 11 people and three bathrooms for 2. We’ve travelled the country and beyond. One of us is an adventurer by nature and the other is a hermit. Neither of us have gotten exactly what we expected.
This life has been better than anything either of us could ever dream. Sometimes though we miss the forest in the trees. I guess that’s a good start on getting to know us. Have fun on the journey.
