I am a 55 year old, graying and aging white American male. In today’s climate I am the most hated and despised being on the planet… by some.
I am a Christian. Have been most my life. Born and raised Baptist. I accepted Jesus into my heart in first grade Sunday School. As an adult I attend a non-denominational church (which actually is a denomination). I have served in the church in many ways… been a youth leader, worked in children’s ministries, worship team ministry, and a Christian comedy and concert event promoter.
I’ve been married almost 32 years. Yes, we have survived. How? Lots of patience, tolerance, ignoring, fights, making up after fights, foot rubs, red licorice and faithfulness.
Have three fetchingly handsome grown sons, of which any Viking father would be proud. Each could whip the snot out of me… if I let them.
I work in IT. Yes, I am a nerd. I am not a geek however. I do bathe regularly and enjoy sunlight.
I am thankful that IT is pronounced “eye-tee”. If it were pronounced “it”, that would be a strange name for the profession.
Imagine someone asking, “So, what do you do for a living?”
and responding with, “I work in ‘it’.” Yeah… that would be weird.
