About the Author
I was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1946, and lived there for three months after which my family moved to Decoy (Knott County) in eastern Kentucky. In 1951 we moved to Harper (Magoffin County) where I began school in a one room schoolhouse. It was in the two communities of Decoy and Harper where I spent the first ten years of my life and where I have many fond memories of life—and church life.
After moving to Greenville (Muhlenberg County) in 1978, I have served as Minister of Music at Second Baptist Church; Associate Pastor at Calhoun Baptist Church, Calhoun (McLean County); Pastor of First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Greenville; and currently am serving as Pastor of Graham Presbyterian Church (USA), Graham.
