My parents raised me as a Christian. I spent my early years in Maryland. I graduated from high school in Maine. I deepened my commitment to Jesus Christ in my final year of attending government-run indoctrination centers. These “institutions” are known to most as public schools. There isn’t anything “public” about them anymore. They are hard core socialist/communist indoctrination centers. That is a subject for future posts.
I was drawn to a deepened commitment to the God of the universe by my girlfriend, Paulie. I married her in 1982. We have served Jesus Christ in public ministry since then.
My first assignment was leadership of a Christian community in Winthrop Maine. While Paulie was giving me three sons I directed a community of up to as many 40 folks. We were a mix of people able, and unable, to function in society. I learned much about Christian justice and grace in those years.
I went from there to the Christian Civic League of Maine. I led that ministry for twenty years.
Through this website, public speaking and political activism I am continuing the mission that I so passionately advocated for while at the League. The men who formed that ministry established three purposes in 1897. I subscribe to all of them.
- To encourage all the people in good citizenship.
- To create good laws and provide for their impartial enforcement.
- To elect honest and competent public officials.
God graduated me from working on these principles in Maine only to thinking about them, and working for them, on a global stage. He has opened many doors for work, activism, education and conversation all over the world.
I love working for Jesus.
