I’m a professional software developer living in Columbus, Ohio, happily married to a wonderful woman by whom I am father to two pretty well grown and wonderful kids. I’m also a graduate of Ashland Theological Seminary with an MA in Practical Theology with a concentration in Spiritual Formation. I don’t identify completely with any particular Christian denomination. I have been a member of a few denominational and non-denominational churches in my time but I have been an intentional follower of Jesus Christ for all of my adult life. I have been a long time member of Bethel Presbyterian Church and still have many good friends there, but am now a part of the Central Vineyard Church community which feels very much like home to me. I’m always searching for more of God, learning how to become more like Jesus and trying to gain a larger perspective on the “big questions” of life.
Why are you here? I’d be glad to hear from you!
You are welcome to respond with your own thoughts (comments, criticisms or whatever) to anything I post here. I consider this an open, public forum. All I ask is that there be no personal attacks, gratuitous foul language, or solicitation. Be intense if you want, but be civil. Thanks.
Relevant quizzes that I’ve taken. (I’m not sure I agree completely with their conclusions. There were too many of the questions on the second one with which I could neither agree or disagree strongly. But, generally speaking, I don’t mind accepting these labels for whatever they’re worth. It’s interesting to see the sort of combinations they came out with.)
