I am excited to announce that my books are now available at amazon.com. You cna find them at: http://www.amazon.com/Living-Life-Miracle-James-Mead/dp/0983196117/ref=pd_rhf_p_img_1 I am very excited about it; I am finally done with this chapter of my life and now I am wondering about some other things. For the time being, I think I will just be content with this! Praise the Lord, it is DONE!
A few years ago I was presented with the opportunity to come back to Stratford, Iowa, to First Baptist church, as their pastor; for those of you who have followed this blog for some time, FBC in Stratford was my first pastorate. Let's just say I prayed about it as I was jumping at the opportunity. The church has a parsonage, so I could live there and not have to worry about a houe payment; and I needed to slow down, and this was a part time position (which, as a side note, allowed for me to get a greater disability from the VA than when I was working full time with St. Croix Hospice...) We love Stratford, and absolutely love the church; the people are wonderful and accepted us, again, with open arms. This was, for me, the perfect position: I get to pastor a church I LOVE, I get to do life with people I LOVE, and I have already had the opportunity to do weddings and baptism services for kids (adults now) that I have known their entire lives. IT IS GREAT. The longer I have been here,
