Today I am an artist, blogger, author & speechwriter. Years ago my graphic art ambition was displaced by theology and altruistic service. Art became my pastime as visual images conceded to word pictures. I acquired Master’s & Doctoral degrees, spent 34 yrs as a pastor and 6 yrs as a denominational executive concluding in ‘08. My faith and principles remain firm as I paint and write. Now writing books, blogging and painting, speaking and travelling.
Backstory: On one of those national days when we honour soldiers present and gone, we observe senior vets standing still with tears in their eyes, who for years have internalized their trauma, and who when asked to comment have nothing to say.
