Bishop's Bio

RUMINATIONS I've maintained a blog called "Around China," since 2007. I developed a number of pages, early on, to chronicle my adventures in China. A few years ago I created the Ruminations page, to jot down occasional thoughts.

RUMINATIONS2 — Developing this web page has given me an opportunity to expand the Ruminations page to a second location, here.



Bishop's Bio

Each of the headings on this page will lead you to pages that tell part of my story. There is a general biography which you can read by clickong on the words "Bishop's Bio," above; or on the first two pictures, on the left side of this page. The next two pictures have links to my Ministry blogs. Also, you can download my current Ministerial Vitae and resume, here

Of all the things I am grateful for, the thing I am most grateful for is the Call to Ministry. Believe me, of all the rich experiences in this life, there is nothing i'd rather do than preach! God brought me to this destiny on a park bench in Jacksonville, Florida, on a solitary November day in 1974.

The irony in this is that about four months before I responded to that clarion Call I'd left the religion of my youth — the Jehovah's Witnesses, and spent most of the intervening time in the Nation of Islam. Now Christ was summoning me to know Him, for real, for the first time in my life!

doing Ministry in the new Millennium

Ford Motor Cmpany trained me as a web developer, toward the end of the 1990s, when eCommerce was just beginning as an idea, and businesses were fretting about "Y2K." Since that time I have thoroughly enjoyed creating web content. I enjoy it because it's a soothing pasttime, but — more importantly — i enjoy it because after almost 40 years in the Ministry, I still have lots to say

About fourteen years ago I was sitting at my desk in Dearborn, thinking about the marvellous achievements in technology that had taken place up to that point in my life — that thanks to the internet a vagabond from the West Side of Detroit could sit at his desk and do ministry anywhere in the world — and I thought to myself, "This is an AMAZING time to be alive!"

The Study

I am a pack rat!

And I am constantly finding great resources for effective Ministry. A few years ago I started to compile web links to some of the Ministry sites that I found helpful I am in the process of updating these links, to "weed out" the places where links have expired, or moved, or just don't work any more. In the meantime, I will post the old information in the directory called "TheStudy." There's a link above my pictures, on the left side of this page.

As I said before, start wherever you want, and stay as long as you want!


In the center of it all, I am a geek. This truth is not lost on the people who know me well. I did not excel at sports. I was not suave or debonair; and could never afford nice clothes. I was "that kid" who hng out in the library, when my friends were at the skating rink.
