About the Ebook
"In the process of preaching across 36 years...I often told personal stories about myself and those close to me...It's those personal stories which appear here. I simply extracted them from the contexts in which I used them in order to preserve the memories they represent...Parishioners, friends, neighbors, and strangers may chuckle and shake their heads, whether or not they know the people and places involved... So, browse these pages as you wish. I'm unabashed!" (from the Introduction)
Ben is a happy retiree, living with his wife Marcia along the Sand River, across the road from Lake Superior in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Besides traveling to see his kids and grandkids, as well as the world, Ben dabbles with projects in his woodshop and volunteers in church, politics and instrumental music.
