The thread that ties this site together is found in the scripture:

whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious,
if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise,
think about these things." - Philippians 4:8


In this section, you learn about my interest in hymns, and the music I have written

Bible Study

This section has Bible Studies on ILCW 3 year Lectionary texts in Greek and Hebrew


Here we have some of my theological papers


These are Sermon sketches, not complete manuscripts, an approach to the text

Red Cross

As a American Red Cross volunteer of many years, I collected some pins, traded some pins, and now collect Red Cross medals of the world

Jordan Family Genealogy

Like many families, I grew up with a tradition about famous relatives, so it seemd good to investigate before passing them on, it was rather interesting.
