I am a son of the Adirondack Mountains in northern New York State. I am privileged to be serving God and my people in this gorgeous region of the country.

Needed Sense of God
One blogger told of a pulpit committee that was seeking a new pastor… He noted,
“The deputation listened to the speaker and later gathered to discuss their response to him. A serious, shy man finally spoke with deep intensity and yet hesitantly, as if very afraid that he would be misunderstood. He said, ‘The fact is, I for one am set down among earthy and material and sometimes squalid things; these shape my life; and the church services are my one chance. Unless I see God there, I shall forget about Him altogether, shall lose sight of him, amid the din and dust and press of life. And while this preacher taught me, interested me, even fascinated me while he was preaching, I was given none of that needed sense of God.”
