A New Chapter

If you had a second chance on life what would you do?

Last year I survived cancer and several hospitalizations. This sort of experience really gets a man thinking about life and death. I know that I won't live forever. Even after many years in ministry this gets me thinking about eternity. It also makes a man think about his life and the impact he will leave. I feel like I have been given a second chance. I also just held my first grandchild in my arms—a powerful experience.

I am 60 years old but my grandson is only a few weeks old. I want to invest myself—my faith, my wisdom, my perspective—into my children and grandchildren, but not just my own "flesh and blood" I also feel a burden to speak my mind to the upcoming generations. That is how this blog was born. I want to share my mind with you.

This is not a publication of Promise Keepers. This is a personal publication of my own thoughts, my vision, my heart. Given that my ministry is to men, I will often discuss men's issues but I hope to also discuss culture, ethics, race, justice, Christianity, politics, business, news headlines, etc. in the light of the truths I know. I may not be the most eloquent man (my training is in business) but I will speak genuinely about what matters to me. These are the thoughts I want to leave to the world...
