Welcome, Bienvenidos, Willkommen, Accueil, Benvenuto, An yo hoshimika.   I am so pleased you have chosen to join me on my new website and my first blog.  I look forward to hearing from you and your feedback.  “Don’t bother to do another one,” is an acceptable response!

A couple of disclaimers:

  • As many know, I’m a native Texan and frequently resort to Texas humor, syntax and/or dialect.  Living in many parts of the world, like Korea, Germany, New Jersey, Kansas and Nebraska I have learned that not everyone appreciates, or even understands my comments.  If it doesn’t make sense, it’s probably me being Texan.
  • As a clergy person, I actively work to not be religious. I won’t be using Christocentric language, for which I have taken a number of criticisms from well intentioned Christians when I was blogging, before it was called blogging during my tenure at Methodist Healthcare System, 1995-2004.

My goal is to publish something at least every other week.  My year of way too much travel, marketing my book, is almost over and I look forward to being home with “The Girls,” my two toy poodles, Bijou and Zoe’. Stand by for pics.

Spirituality is how one relates to their universe.  Religion is the codification of spirituality.  Those definitions have worked many years for me. I hope they will for you as I share my thoughts, experiences and hopes.


Peace, mtc
