About

“His Eye is on the Sparrow…and I KNOW He watches over me.”

“The moment a man realizes that he is only a pilgrim in this world, that finally he has to die and to face God, and that there is all eternity before him, his whole outlook on life changes.” –

Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Hebrews 6:10        
John 15:5                       

G.W. is a retired pastor/teacher to inner city homeless/drug/alcohol addicted.

I was ordained a minister of the gospel of  Jesus Christ, and set apart to be a missionary to inner city America, particularly to the homeless and drug/alcohol addicted.

I’m early retired military (Army Airborne). And now retired from ministry as a pastor/teacher of the Bible, including full-time duties as a substance abuse counselor at a Christian faith-based inner-city rehab and homeless shelter (which I simply refer to as The Mission–its original name). It was both the most challenging and most gratifying assignment I ever experienced. Preaching the Word of God to men who knew their lives had reached the bottom of the barrel, and watching them receive it, was more than joyful; it was humbling. For I had been where some of them were.

  1. May God continue to bless your ministry. Drug and alcohol addiction has destroyed more American men than war. It is a constant battle for recovery, and without God, most lose their own personal war.
    I’ve always felt that the church is losing our young men, to both addictions, well before they reach maturity. Perhaps this is your next calling? Catch them for Christ, BEFORE they get started on the devil’s path to hell. High school or perhaps even junior high? Thank you for following my blog.

    1. Thank you, K.Q., and thank you for your timely suggestion. Yes, I agree that addiction is an ever-spreading plague in our society. One I believe that has a sure cure only through our Lord’s direct intervention on a personal level.
      Thank you for stopping by.

  2. G.W. it is so wonderful to find another sojourner on the same path. Though we have both been members of the WordPress Christian Community for years ~ I, since 2011~ it a blessing to find you here. Looking forward to sharing the truths of our heavenly Father and our Lord Jesus Christ. The Lord bless you as you continue to serve Him in this wilderness. 🙂

  4. G.W., the “Writer’s Nook | Journal and Poems” you mentioned in About Me is not a link, and I can’t find that category, menu item or whatever, anywhere… I’m by nature curious and snoopy, so would like to read more about you, if available. Thanks for liking my Esther’s Petition post, by the way… have a blessed day. Bette Cox, Florence, SC. https://estherspetition.wordpress.com/ (Just one of the blogs I write.)
