Welcome to my little corner of the interwebs!  It’s a cozy home, full of introspection, attempted humor and profound insight.

I hope you’ll take some time to look around for a while.  Check out the archives, read through some of my past thoughts on a variety of topics.  If anything catches your eye, feel free to leave a comment!

Here’s a taste of what you’ll find here:

Blog: At the very top of the page, you’ll see a link that says, “Blog”.  If you want a chronological view of the writing that I have done, this is the place to go.  As posts are written and published, they will appear in order here, with the most recent being on top.  I will also be placing them into particular categories, and those categories are listed below.  If you are only interested in my posts on movies, then just click on the “Movies” tab.  Here’s a description of what to expect in the tabs.

Baseball: Click on the Baseball tab and you’ll see all of my posts that relate to America’s pastime.  At one point, I wrote a blog called Bases Loaded Balk.  I have integrated those posts into this blog, so there’s a hefty archive.  As the topic comes up, it will be filed here.

Leadership: Leadership is an area about which I am trying to continually learn more.  I will share some of my thoughts with you on the subject of leadership in this area.

Life in General: Not everything that I write about will have to do with ministry, baseball, leadership, etc.  Sometimes, I just write about what’s going on in my life.  You’ll see those posts under this heading.

Ministry: Under the “Ministry” tab, you will find reflections on Scripture, my thoughts on the Church and ministry in general.

Movies: I love movies.  I like to watch movies.  Given a full day to do absolutely nothing else, I would watch movies… and probably play video games, which are kind of like interactive movies.  I go to movies as often as I can, and you’ll find some movie reviews under this tab.

Sermon: As a pastor, I tend to preach… quite a bit.  Each week, I put up an audio link to my sermon.  You can find those links here.

Local Church: In this section, you’ll find the posts that I have specifically written for the local church where I am serving. Initially, you’ll notice that some of the tags may say “Smith Valley”; however, I moved in 2017, so I needed to change things up a bit!

Sports: Now, you may be thinking, “Why have a ‘Baseball’ tab and a ‘Sports’ tab?”  Well, because I write about baseball a whole lot more than I write about other sports; however, I do still write about other sports from time to time.  In the archives of this section, you can follow my fantasy football teams from years past.  I haven’t really done that this season, but I’m sure something will come up.

Writing: Here, you’ll find some of my writings that fit more into the “creative writing” category.  Thanks to a class on poetry at Smith Valley UMC, I’m trying to do some creative writing with some frequency, and I’ll share those writings in this section.

Recommendations: I’m hoping to also start something a little different. I’ll be reviewing some products from time to time, and including links where you can purchase those products to try out for yourself.  I know, I know, shameless attempt for a little extra cash. We’ll see how it goes.  Along those lines… “We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.”
