Life is a pilgrimage; and along the way we are free to create and collect those notions and novelties that we fancy.

This website is the repository for the writings and miscellanea I have gleaned or concocted in my pilgrimage through life and ministry.

Perhaps it will amuse, inspire, or inform you.  Feel free to glean from its offerings and enrich your own repertoire.  –JMS
