I set up my first blog site and began sending short, informal messages after retiring from Foundry Church, in Bend, where I served twenty-four years as lead, teaching pastor. My initial site was called Ramblings of a Retired Preacher, but after encouragement from friends, who felt I had matured past rambling, I chose a new title about a front porch swing. Old homes often had front porches where people sat and visited in the cool evenings. Front porches helped bring neighbors together.
Then the inquiries came… how much for a porch swing, etc. So we’ve rebranded with a new site and name. I hope that you’ll find the content of the same level. I welcome your input.
We’ll be moving some of the posts from the old site soon.
