After 26 years in uniform as a USAF Chaplain (five of those years in the Reserves), I hung up my uniform for the final time on 30 June 2011, retiring as a Chaplain, Lieutenant Colonel. My wife Denise and I live in Estes Park, Colorado where I am the pastor of Presbyterian Community Church of the Rockies. 

This blog is a combination of Scripture reflections that are a part of my sermon preparation and nightly prayers I write. It is also a place where I share blogs from fellow bloggers and some of my own photography.

May you be blessed as you visit my little corner of the blogosphere!

    Hey Michael! How’s life in Estes Park?

    • Estes Park is amazing! We are really loving the wildlife literally in our yard (Elk & Deer) and hiking in the park plus walking around town. The church is very busy and I am enjoying the ministry immensely!

  2. Just a quick FYI. Daughter retired Major, USAF, 10 enlisted, 4 a Navy Nurse, 12 back to the AF as the Equal Opportunities officer with Dover AFB reserve component. Granddaughter, husband +4 children here enroute from Tinker to Geilenkirchen NATO base in Germany. Both academy grads, both Captains. I spent 6 with USMC, 3 ANG. Enjoying your blog, just wanted to say hi and thanks for your service.
