My Original Contributions
I wanted to share a little holiday cheer, so I typed in the lyrics for a
collection of Christmas carols. It's the biggest draw for my
I collect prayers said before meals, including prayers suitable for
Please contribute to my collection of bedtime prayers, especially if you have one
suitable for children.
I practice my Christian faith in the Episcopal Church, and I have produced a few
resources for my denomination. I maintain a copy of the 1979 Book
of Common Prayer and an Unofficial Web for The Anglican
Digest. I also took notes at the 1994 Anglican Conference.
Information about the phenomenal movement (of God, I believe). Includes links and my
My publications to date include a letter to an
agnostic friend; "Ground Rush," an
essay about God's relationship to time, Biblical end times (eschatology), and
parachutes; "Choices," a short story
about a man, his lover, his wife, and Dial soap; a summary of Mere Christianity; "Terror Beneath the Earth: My First Caving
Adventure"; reflections on a spiritual retreat;
and a few letters to the editor of my local newspaper on the subjects of abortion, who should care for the poor, and Christians seeking a democratic voice.
One of my most rewarding hobbies is reading. I have comments about several books that I
have read, including The Crown and the
Fire: Meditations on the Cross and the Life of the Spirit, by Tom Wright; Whose Body?, by Dorothy L. Sayers; The HP Way, by David Packard; "Fundamentalism" and
the Word of God, by J.I. Packer; The Tribute,
by Dennis Rainey; Celebration of
Discipline, by Richard J. Foster; Surprised
by Joy, by C.S. Lewis; The
Devaluing of America, by William Bennett; and First
Things First, by Stephen Covey.

Last, here's a little about me.

(Updated 11/27/99). I have found a passion:
motorcycles. In the summer of 1997 I learned to ride a motorcycle, bought one (1982 Suzuki
GS750T), put about 1,000 miles on it practicing, drove it to the Promise
Keepers Stand in the Gap in Washington, D.C. on the Christian
Motorcyclists Association's Ride to the Gap, and drove it home again. 4,300 miles, 13
states, 12 days. Unfortunately, my Suzuki is broken. It lasted a year practically to the
day. It looks like oil wasn't getting to one of the cylinders. The camshaft and bearing
race are ruined. The shop quoted a repair fee that exceeded what I paid for the bike. I
tracked down an engine to drop in and get the bike back on the road. It's sitting in my
garage on the original palette. I hope to get the bike running before Spring.
Some people have asked, so I put a picture of
my GS750T (84Kb) and a larger version of the same picture
(344Kb) on the Web.
