Perspective

My original blog subject will be “Church Life.” My intention here is to tell stories from my and others’ experiences from church. There are many comical as well as inspirational things that go on around different aspects of church life. Hopefully I will get folks laughing, remembering and reflecting on these. I plan on ending each story with something everyone can take home & that will encourage them to look forward to the next one. Maybe some people will see the necessity of the Church and this blog will begin to chip away at some barriers that have been there unnecessarily.

After this series, I would like to write some about sports history, American history, etc. I like historical characters and I like to dig up unique things that have been overlooked or misrepresented. I want to always look for the truth and bring it to the light.

Being a committed Christian, everything I write will come from the basis of a Biblical world view, there again, always seeking truth and honesty. Being a Rotarian, I must make sure it is the truth, fair to all concerned, that it builds good will and better friendships and that it is beneficial to all concerned.
