As Easter approaches and we find the world in turmoil, I feel compelled to share what I consider to be my greatest work. Yes my greatest work. While I have written many songs over the years, many of which I have yet to share (stay tuned), I consider this simple poem that I penned about the life of Jesus Christ to be my greatest work.
I started writing this poem many years ago as a young missionary in the Dominican Republic (~1989), and finished it just a few years ago in 2017. It’s a simple summary of some of the key events from the life of Christ that many of us have read about over the years in the New Testament of the Holy Bible. Each time that I re-read this poem I am touched and feel the power of Christ, and I hope that you will feel it too.

I humbly declare that I believe that Christ is the Son of God and our Lord and Savior. I know that He and God the Father loves each of us, watches over us, and cares about every aspect of our lives. It’s my prayer that we will seek Him out and find the light, peace, and happiness that the Gospel of Jesus Christ offers to all mankind.
