Hopefully, the snow will not be as bad as predicted so we can make it up to Open Door tomorrow. It has been an enjoyable few weeks with the folks in this church in central Missouri. They have even put a sermon or two of mine on their webpa... Read more

After several months, the cancer has gotten the best of our oldest daughter's dog. Aslan will be going to the vet this afternoon and we will most likely have to put him down. As you can imagine, it has been a rather sad day for our family. Our y... Read more
