Achievements

  • Bar: Minnesota 1952.

Religion

The life with Christ has nothing to do with being in a "church" atmosphere for all eternity. God’s salvation involves far more. He is planning to make his children productive, creative, useful, and supremely happy, within an environment of spiritual perfection, health, peace, and love.

Politics

When the Church as a body engages with political issues, it should follow the principles of Christian faith.

Views

In a society where self-interest, acquisitiveness and individual happiness are often seen as the over-riding interests, the Church, and Christians within it, are called to witness meanings, values and purposes beyond ourselves.

Membership

Served with United States Naval Reserve, 1942-1946.
