It is hard to say who I am and why I am here, but one fact for sure is that I am a repeat failed blogger. I’ve been in 101 two prior times have never found a way to continue a blog. I was in this course in January of this year for as long as it took the bloom to wear off of a new year’s resolution. With me, it has never taken long so I was probably out of here before the end of the first week. It obviously is also true that I am back to give it another whirl.
I’ve just retired from ministry in the United Methodist Church and my wonderful wife and I have moved into a Texas Hill Country town about an hour west of Austin. This blog will be about such things as Christianity, politics, government, and new science research that we can apply in our lives. Religion is part of this for obvious reasons. Politics and government is part of it because I worked as a staff person, lawyer or lobbyist in and around the Texas Legislature for about 22 years. I also love TED talks, NPR and cruising YouTube for interesting talks, so will also blog about what I find of interest in those places.
