What are your spiritual gifts?
I do love to preach and teach and I love to study to teach. I’ve been at preaching and teaching for more than 35 years and I’m still learning new things in my study of scripture, which is very exciting to me.
Tell us about your family.
My wife, Susie, and I have been married for 35 years. Susie works as a counselor. My son, John, recently graduated from culinary school and works in a restaurant in Manhattan. My daughter, Tiffany, lives in Richmond and works for Pandora Jewelry.
If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Since childhood I have loved avocados and avocado sandwiches. Now it turns out that the food I have loved is very healthy. I wish that had turned out to be the case with the many sugary foods I love. Oh, well, I will keep eating avocados without guilt.
