About

Hi, my name is Mark and this is my blog. I write mostly about my faith, but also about other things when the fancy grabs me, I love music and was a worship leader for the last 15 years, but I love life in all its packages, neat and tidy, messy and intense.

Originally the title of this blog was about me breaking guitar strings during worship, it was a normal event for a season, I am a pretty percussive guitar player and often broke strings right in the middle of our corporate worship time in Canyon Chapel Williams…but lately (since leaving Williams) the idea of broken strings appeals to me on a different level…living life with no strings attached, strings of fear, control, culture and expectation…what if we could live completely free of the entrapment’s?

My life story is a journey of faith, saved at six by an encounter with Jesus and the path later where-in I discover divorce/death/defeat/dis-fill-in-the-blank, and being a single dad of the 5 most incredible people I know, redemption/restoration/reconciliation/re-fill-in-the-blank, and  friends who walked with me, away from me and to me as my journey has evolved.

I think that’s what drives me most though, I fall in love and then have to clean up the mess…I don’t mind though and anyone who thinks there should be nothing to clean up is either not paying attention or does not understand the power of passion.

So feel free to comment, agree, disagree, I hope its fun, although I struggle with being overly intense at times…

My primary goals at this time is to make God my number one delight and to live every day in joy… add another page.

  2. Mark…doubt you remember me…I was a part of your youth group at the Prague United Methodist Church in the early 80s and played bass a few times with you and Mark Chisolm in a Res Band-style Christian rock band that never got off the ground. Thought of you earlier and decided to see if you could be found on the Internet. I’m glad to see you are doing well.
