My theological background incorporates an upbringing in the Episcopal Church, study with Catholic Franciscan Monks, and over 35 years of serving in the Christian Church Disciples of Christ, which has involved preaching, over 30 years of weekly adult Bible teaching, and leadership roles on the Board of Elders and the Regional Church Board.
Along with my life as a follower of the LORD Jesus Christ, I am a stone mason, cabinetmaker, and exotic hardwoods craftsman. I am also an architect with 35 years of experience, and as such an observer and thinker. I understand how things cohere and the very nature of design, composition, strength, structure, and systems. As such, I have a deep comprehension of aesthetics, physics, and mathematics, and an appreciation for biology, chemistry, hydrology, sociology, and psychology. I have three university degrees and am self-taught in particle physics and cosmology. I have taught college level classes on creativity and the environment, as well as lectured at the college level on architecture, creativity and construction.
Along the way of my spiritual walk, I have written scholarly articles on “The Trinity” and “The Elements of Holy Communion”. I have also written an E-book entitled “11:11, the Importance of Putting Jesus Christ First in Your Life”. These documents are all available for free download at Muskrat Books. My first book published by Muskrat Books in 2010 is titled, “I Am, the Great Creator God”. A 20 year long project from 1990 to 2010 that answers many of the great questions of the ages, this meaningful and thought-provoking book teaches how to have the eyes to see…really see, who God really is. This book and my second book, "A Different Kind of Tree", are available at Muskrat Books; check it out at www.muskratbooks.com.
