Favorite Music:  iPod music: Ed Sheeran – anything he does live I absolutely love.

My favorite bible verse is:      I create the light and make the darkness.  I send good times and bad times. I, the Lord, am the one who does these things  Isaiah 45:7

Favorite dinner would probably be a good steak. Well done.

Best thing about First Church is: no matter who you are or where you’ve been you’ll always find a welcoming hug and an honest smile.

Books I’m reading: currently trying to find the time to make it through two books. 1. “A perfect union of contrary things” by Maynard James Keenan. 2. It’s an old book by the name of “We” by Russian author Yevgeny Zamyatin. It is said to be the direct inspiration to George Orwells “1984” which is one of my all time favorite books. Definitely top three.
