Thanksgiving Day Silly Walks
This year we gave thanks by doing silly walks with our friends.
Seek the Fire

Elijah challenged them to a contest. Each would build an altar to their own god, Elijah to the one true God and the 450 prophets to Baal.

Mad About Me
I'm Eric, the Mad Pastor. You know mad like cuckoo, crazy, nutty. Like a mad scientist. Only I don't know anything about science. It really ruined my GPA in high school.
I used to pastor a church in the Chicago area. Now I'm moving back to California to serve a new church (well, new for me anyway).
I'm married. I do wood working, I write sermons, baptize people, perform weddings, funerals, and whatever else ministry requires. I seem to move a lot of chairs. huh. go figure.
