Even though I am in my 70s, I am a new deacon. I follow outstanding priests and deacons. I hope to follow in their footsteps.

My formative years were spent at Christ School,  with a firm religious education including nightly evening song, Sunday sung Eucharist, corporate communions on holy days and weekly sacred studies. Little did I know then where it would lead me.

I am married to the love of my life Betsy and we have two married children and one granddaughter. I am a semi-retired attorney. Betsy and I enjoy our family and each other. We like to travel, day hike, and spend time with our children and granddaughter.

I love our Anglican heritage as it is founded on the incredible love of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads us to the loving Father and our salvation.   How can we as miserable sinners not respond in abject gratitude to his love, grace and mercy?  Thanks be to God.
