Merrinacity is a combining of my last name and the word tenacity. I think that tenacity is one of many good words to describe me. Thank you Rick Ridpath for the idea.
I am a father of four, a husband, and a pastor. I am a member of the generation often referred to as Gen X… which means I grew up right along beside the revolutionary evolution of technology and personal computers. I saw the rise of MTV as a dominate force in pop culture, and watched as it became just another force to me reckoned with. Ito quote Esqueleto from the movie Nacho Libre, “I am a man of science”, though I also am one who believes deeply in God; I am often amused and/or annoyed with those who see science and religion as necessary enemies. I am fascinated by extremes in life, especially in regards to politics, pop culture, religion, and science. I love to see how they mix, coalesce, and clash.
I am the pastor of Hodge Presbyterian Church and may from time to time post something church related on this blog. When I do I will post it under the category of Hodge Presbyterian. I also plan to begin to post each sermon I write in the near future, these I will post under the category of Sermons.
