a continuing story of trust, grace and community


Hello!  Thanks for joining me.

We are all on a journey in this life.  Join me on mine.  Take a seat…relax…and enjoy the moment.

…Don’t rush away.  Life’s too busy anyways.

Just stop

…and breathe.

I’m generally the type of guy that can get focused and task driven.  So this is a reminder for me too, to just slow down a bit and take it in.  Enjoy the journey and the hope of the destination.

I have created this site to share my thoughts and interests, to cause me to slow down a bit and record what is making my heart sing at the moment.  I hope something I post will also interest you, will cause you to think a bit and reflect on what really matters to you.  And perhaps you might develop or discover a song in your heart as well.  If your song is already loud and strong, feel free to post replies and share.  Click on the “my journey” link to view my posts.

Paul, the writer of the letter 1 Thessalonians, says, “So encourage each other and build each other up.”  Let’s do that here.

    This is so awesome Big Brother. I am so glad that God is blessing you. Francis of Assisi once said, “Preach the Gospel of Christ at all times. If Necessary, use words.” That is exactly how you live your life, and I am so thankful for the wisdom you have shared with me over the years. You have helped me in my walk with Christ in more ways than you could ever think about. Love you Len.

    Dear Pastor Len. I truly have a new admiration for you after reading about your marathons. To see you in person, you are such a humble man.
    Thank you for all of you shared insights that we should all feel akin to, really had me stopping and reelecting on what more God wants from us – to be joyful! (That’s a tough one.)
    Thank you for sharing all you that have.
