Achievements

  • Certified art teacher, gifted endorsement, Indiana.

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

God, who is heard throughout the Bible, calls for justice for the widows, orphans and aliens who were oppressed by the powers of the day. Therefore the involvement in political life is something that Christians should not avoid.

Views

The strong feature of Methodism is that prayers are not only led by an ordained minister, but often by a local preacher - a lay person who has been trained and authorized to lead worship and preach.

Vice president Jasper Arts Commission, 1980-1986. District representative Art Education Association of Indiana, Indianapolis, 1986. Board directors Community Players Theater Group, Jasper, 1986-1987.
