What funny and/or interesting stories can you tell us about your job?

I have done Christ-centered counseling for 30 years and hearing all the personal stories I have heard has been extremely interesting, especially when people are ready to receive Christ and learn to follow Him; all the awkward times of trying to communicate in Hungarian, for instance when I went into an auto parts store to buy tires and they told they did not sell them when I could see that they did...and realized later that I had been asking for condoms in Hungarian!

What brings you the most joy these days?

Hanging out with my kids and grandkids; hitting a good golf shot; teaching the Bible

What are your favorite books or movies? Particularly which ones may have been life changing for you and why?

Basic Christianity, John Stott - informed my concepy of Jesus Christ; Birthright, David Needham - informed my ideas about my identity in Christ; Lifetime Guarantee, Bill Gillham - informed my understanding of the flesh; The Normal Christian Life, Nee - transformed my understanding of Romans; Man's Search for Meaning, Frankl - one of the best "non-Christian books ever; The Rest of the Gospel, Stone - further expansion of flesh v. spirit; Hemingway - just good, meaningful fiction about man's struggle for purpose; the Bible.
Can't say that any movies have changed my life but I love going and being caught up in the drama. The opera Les Mis was huge in that it does such a great job in effectively singing Hugo's marvelous novel.
