About Me

Mike hopes to see the world turned upside down through local communities banding together for social change, especially churches which have recognized the radical calling to be good news to the poor, to set free the prisoners and oppressed, and to become the social embodiment of the reign of God on earth as it is in heaven. He lives with the blessed memory of his wife, in Durham, NC, and has three adult children living in three different states. He also shares his life with the Mt. Level Missionary Baptist Church in Durham, the faculty and students of Shaw University Divinity School in Raleigh, NC, and the faithful fans of Duke and Baylor Basketball in his neighborhood.

Family at Thanksgiving

We have had a great Thanksgiving visit this week.  We went to Port Neches to visit the Estes clan at Ruth and Nathan Reynolds' house.  Cousin Gary Reynolds came from Seattle with Paula, his wife, and Dylan his son.  We have not seen them in many years.  Nephew Kenny had a great time talking the music business with Gary, who has a band and a recording studio.  Cousin Buddy Reynolds, Cindy, his wife, Buddy's son Kevin, and grandson Charlie were there, too.  Ruth and Nathan were doing great.

Herb, Marie, John, Ruth, Emily, and Ken joined our family in the drive.  Last night we stayed at Herb and Marie's place in Pearland.  They have put their townhome on the market, and they are planning to relocate to Austin soon.  Follow the link if you want to live on a golf course 15 minutes from the Medical Center.

The chance to get together with family in this way is one of the great blessings of moving to Texas.  This afternoon we go to Salado to be with W.D. and Hugh Delle.  We'll be cooking Thanksgiving dinner with them on Saturday.

We could only talk with Jerene and Jim on the phone.  Thanksgiving without them this year is the sad side of moving to Texas.
