I am a husband, a father, and a grandfather. I've lived in Eagan since 1994, and currently serve part-time on the internship staff at Luther Seminary. I was a Lutheran parish pastor for 38 years, serving congregations in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Minnesota. I've also written five books, a number of magazine articles, and columns for three different publications. I am a member of the Southside Writers. I love baseball, golf, walking our two screwball terriers, reading, and "pushing the envelope" in all things!
