About me

Gender MALE
Industry Religion
Occupation Program Director
Location San Diego, CA, United States
Introduction I'm a big fan of G.K. Chesterton, George MacDonald and C.S. Lewis. A couple of other authors I like are Paul Johnson and Wallace Stegner. I prefer radio to TV and listen to Dennis Prager, Mark Levine and Glenn Beck. I enjoy photography, reading, cooking, good conversation, singing old hymns and smoking fine cigars. I belong to a downtown church and am director of the charity program there, Ladle Fellowship. Your comments and suggestions are very welcomed and much appreciated. - - - - - - - - - - God took hold of my life in 1972 in the midst of the Jesus Movement. If you are interested in learning more about that history--and about how I was seduced (intellectually and spiritually) from atheism and radical/revolutionary politics into being a follower of Jesus then go to http://manalive7.blogspot.com and to the archive for May of 2009. There you will find my Father's Day Revisited series. All these many years later and I am still in awe of the miracle of my conversion. Praise be to God!
