I am the pastor of a rather conservative rural congregation in Southwestern Ontario. My interests alongside of work are hunting, fly fishing, cooking, and life in an agricultural community. By way of family, I have a wife and two children: a daughter and a son. I am of indeterminate age because my wife is a bit younger than I am and my son is ages with some of my friends’ grandchildren. However, to say that I slip smoothly among the generations would imply an agility which I no longer possess. I aspire to the genteel poverty of the country manse.
I am not one for keeping a diary or journal: hence the use of ‘occasional’. I am, on the other hand, a frustrated columnist. So, it might be helpful to think of this blog as the country life column of the magazine which you compile from the web.
