Hi! Thanks for visiting my blog.

A little about me: I am a husband, father, and pastor currently serving St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Warrens, Wisconsin. I previously served Faith Lutheran Church in Sioux Falls, South Dakota from 2012-2019. My bride, Heidi, and I have four children and we enjoy exploring scenic western Wisconsin as a family.  I am a former member and chairman of the Board of Directors for Shepherd’s Canyon Retreat in Wickenburg, Arizona. (The background sunset photo on my original post was taken at Shepherd’s Canyon in 2017.)

The title of this blog is drawn from an expression that the Apostle Peter uses in Acts chapter 3:20, the only reference to “times of refreshing” in Scripture. Through this blog, I hope to provide a mix of both refreshing & encouraging and also challenging & thought-provoking reflections which are consistently Christ-centered. Thanks for reading!

Christ’s peace.
