Over the last fifty odd years I have been writing under this heading. I first used it in bulletin articles when I was in local work in the 60`s and used it is Christian Times newspaper when I was publishing it. Later, we established the web site and for several years I did daily articles, then weekly, then “on occasion.” For a while I would write an article, then record it, then post both on the web site. The topics are wide-ranging and straight forward.

Thank you for visiting!
