About me:Happily married, Christian dad, originally from Georgetown, Ohio, now in Brunswick, GA (stopped off for a few years in both Athens, OH & Athens, GA). I've been blessed with an incredible family: Cyle, my wife is gorgeous, creative, and full of suprises, and my son, Kenimer, is personality incarnate & should have his debut cd released before he's 2.
Formerly an Atheist, God got His grip on me around 1991 and I've been pursuing Jesus since. I help lead worship (and love it) at St. Simons Community Church. I also lead worship with my wife as Saint Lewis.
Good music takes my breath away.
I devour multiple books at a time.
My favorite color is the line that is formed where the dark green treetops touch the deep blue sky on a clear day in late spring.
I am convinced that God is big - no, huge - I'm talking outstandingly beyond our comprehension, and that, if He didn't let little hints of himself peek through the cracks in our reality, we'd be lost as to even speak of Him.
And Jesus - well - Jesus takes my breath away. Even when my faith is shaken, I return to the person of Jesus and cannot let go of him (or, rather, He won't let go of me).
I'm still exploring the depths of the Spirit. The journey has just begun.
p.s. - my personal quote for the year is: "Minimize self - elevate others."
So far, I'm proving to be pretty bad at that.
"God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing." -C.S.Lewis
"I do not come into this pulpit hoping that perhaps somebody will of his own free will return to Christ. My hope lies in another quarter. I hope that my Master will lay hold of some of them and say, 'You are mine, and you shall be mine. I claim you for myself.' My hope arises from the freeness of grace, and not from the freedom of the will." - Charles Haddon Spurgeon
"Christ did not come into the world to make bad people good, but to made dead people live." - Ravi Zacharius
"Try and penetrate with our limited means the secrets of nature and you will find that, behind all the discernible laws and connections, there remains something subtle, intangible and inexplicable. Veneration for this force beyond anything that we can comprehend is my religion."
- Albert Einstein
Who I'd like to meet:In first place would be Jesus, and numerous other Biblical persons, but somewhere in that list would also be Jonathan Edwards, George Whitfield, & Bono. Apart from those, I love reconnecting with old friends and acquaintances, especially folks former G-men, OU friends, & folks I was connected to at UGA during my years there. Drop me a note and let's keep in touch!
