I am proud to be a prairie pastor ... I love the midwestern United States for its people, its landscapes, and the way it grounds me. Located now in Champaign, IL I enjoy the intellectual and cultural advantages of the twin cities flanking the University of Illinois' main campus. I love my church, my family and my community (the order changing hourly). I join the musical group the Weepies in proclaiming, "I was made for sunny days ..." While grateful for the nourishing rains and enthralled with the magic of new fallen snow, nothing gets me up and moving like a blue sky with radiant beams cascading over the surrounding fields. Wishing you sunny days!
