July 1st launched a new chapter in my ministry within the life of the United Methodist Church. It marked the second time for laying aside "retirement" to return to active service. It is an honor to have been invited to assume the position of Interim President-Dean of Gammon Theological Seminary. The Board of Trustees has been very gracious and I promise to give my best in furthering high standards in theological education, to the end that our congregations will have clergy prepared to effectively serve on day one. I ask for your prayers and help in getting the job done. Together all things are possible.
