My name is Mark Lloyd Richardson. I am a United Methodist minister, which means that I believe God searches for us when we are lost, goes before us, comes behind us, is the ground beneath us and the breath within us. God is unconditional grace. There is no place we can travel where God is not already present. There is nothing we can discover about ourselves or the world that God doesn’t already know. Other than those beliefs, I don’t claim to know very much.
I am a husband, a father of two young adult children, a stepfather, a brother and brother-in-law, an uncle, a nephew, a cousin, and a son — all of these family relationships mean the world to me! They help me understand who I am.
Life is pure gift! If the only prayer we say is “Thanks,” it is enough!
