That is the formal summary. Now I, Gary, can tell you a little about myself. I am past retirement age but have no interest in retirement. By the grace of God I have good health and lots of energy so I continue to write, teach, speak at conferences, travel, and spend time with younger, emerging leaders who keep me sharp and up to date. I am an avid reader of books and magazines, many of which are about leadership, future trends, the changing church, spiritual growth, contemporary issues, counseling and coaching. My wife and I like classical music, even though we don’t play any instruments. We both have international hearts, connect well and often with people from other parts of the world, and are grateful for speaking invitations that enable us to visit other countries and interact with people around the globe, including many friends. I work out at a local gym on a consistent basis (guided by a fitness trainer) and we are members of a local church.
Thanks for reading my blog/newsletter. And please remember to keep growing and keep learning. God bless you.
