Hoisted from comments, from Chris:

Oh, God. How pompous my title and etc. sound! Of course, a little pomposity is always enjoyable to a Leo.

Somehow, an innocent lass agreed to marry me over ten years ago, and together we find ourselves continually shocked and surprised by a stunningly gorgeous, sweet, and sharp-witted red-haired daughter, named Augusta. She is the light of our lives.

It is true that a group of folks in Houston were persuaded to believe that a guy who passed through Berkeley and Stanford might be able to help them put new wine into old wineskins, breathing new life into a shrinking church by talking less about doctrine and discipline and more about the love of God. It seems to be working. As with all of us in whatever callings we pursued, there are challenges. But our mutual pursuit of joy and peace seem to be bearing fruit for all concerned.

I am so glad that someone (several someones, apparently) wants to try to reconnect. I'm all for it. How can I help?

Meanwhile, until then, I remain grateful for our shared experiences and memories.

Warmly,
Chris
