By description, I'm a shepherd, a spiritual director or pastor. 6’ 2” and married to the 4' 11" Lauralea, father of four kids all over 5'.
The kids have moved on and married wonderful people. They have started having beautiful children of their own. Now it's Lauralea and I learning to navigate life alone, again. The past few years have seen a new twist to life as we have faced some health issues. But we are trying to grow through them, rather than to be sidelined by them.
I'm learning to live life, to write and to take pictures. I like tea with mint and coke with eggnog. I like all kinds of music and I'm an Amateur Radio nerd, VE6VOR, and for the last 12 years we've lived in a field in Alberta, Canada.
I care about people. Regular people with their good days and bad days who are just trying to live out their lives and make some sense of it all while they journey the seasons of life.
I care for people by walking alongside them, listening to them, praying for them, and when opportunity arises, I speak into their lives where I see God moving. I serve them by bearing witness that God does indeed love them and is at work in their lives.
I care that the spiritually struggling can find hope in God, and that his work in their lives through Jesus the Christ will make their old things new, and their dead things come back to life.
It may be a cliché, but I care.
