First Lutheran Church
Religious Organization in El Cajon, CA
George Gallup has said: Americans are among the loneliest people in the world. In the midst of busy lives, over committed schedules, and congested cities, we feel alone. Although we drive overcrowded freeways to catch overbooked flights, we live in isolation. Because of that we're a culture craving relationship. There is a reason we crave connection. It's the reason for which God made us. God created us for a relationship with Him, and for relationships with others. We're designed to live in community, not in isolation.

I am blessed to be in retirement, spending time with my beloved bride of nearly 37 years, my Kawai. We have been blessed with two beautiful daughters who have made us grandparents three times over. I served churches in Utah, in Orange, CA, also in Coos Bay, Oregon. My final call, lasting 18 years was in Rialto, CA. Upon retiring a bit more than 2 years ago we settled in Carlsbad.
