I enjoyed talking with Mark Gettemeyer, a fellow Cougar from the class of ’85, about what has shaped his beliefs in life. We talk about the suffering his dad went through before death, the problem with that and the Christian God, his entry into Buddism, and what Mark’s life looks like now.
Bishop Ron is a pastor in Festus, Missouri. We talk about hearing the voice of God and having a relationship with God.
I enjoyed a conversation with Jason, a fellow church member. Even though our circles are predominately Republican, Jason decided to vote democrat in the last 2 presidential elections. We talk about that and about handling our nation’s history, pledging to the flag and other things.
Thomas Wurtz is an author, missionary, husband and father. We talk about Jesus, the beauty of Jesus, Roman Catholicism, differences with protestantism, and enjoying Jesus.
There’s really no theme to our conversation. We bounce around all over. But, Stuart and Jennifer are two special people, raising some wonderful children, and I’m glad for the opportunity to learn more about them. Jennifer grew up in Bolivia and is busy at being a mom. Stuart is involved in local radio among other things.
