Okay… I can’t speak in third person about myself any longer. Trying to sum up who I am is a complicated affair. I am a musician. I am a photographer. I am a leader. I am a husband. I am a father. I do not claim to do all of these things well. Nor do I claim to do any of these things well. I do not even feel comfortable calling myself any of these titles save for husband and father. I do not play my bass guitar well, but I do play, so other musicians call me.. musician. I am not a professional photographer, but I have on occasion taken some really good photos. I do not enjoy calling myself a leader, but others look to me to lead at times.
I have spent the last 20 years protecting men and women from themselves, their work, and their environment. I have spent several years teaching others about the saving grace and love of our Lord, while learning and growing in it myself. And I have spent time in the back of an ambulance, attempting, and sometimes succeeding in saving lives.
I used to describe my job(s) in this way…
I spend Monday through Friday trying to save people’s lives and prevent their injury. On Saturdays I tried to save their lives after they were injured. And on Sundays I tried to save their souls.
And finally I am a husband and father. Those two can be the hardest, yet most rewarding jobs there are.
Now I am most of these things… as well as a seminary student.
