I "retired" from a 26+ year career with a financial payment industry giant (Visa). After some wilderness walking to discern next steps in my life, God came calling. It seems the Lord would have me minister in the future as an ordained person. So I completed my last year of seminary and was recently ordained a deacon in in the Episcopal Church, and will be priested in December 2012. I'm married to Heart Of My Heart for 31+ (not long enuff!) years and father to two four-legged critters known as Lazarus (boy) and Gili (girl). We're excited about the opportunities ahead and the places where we might go, but I am happy now to stay here awhile longer. Thank you, Lord, for your mercy is great!
