Hi. That’s me up there at the top of the page.
My wife Sue and I are empty-nesters with three adult children.
We have 2 dogs and a cat. The Enns family record is 3 dogs, 3 cats, 2 ferrets, not to mention 11 rabbits—but that’s only because the kid at the pet store said, “Sure, they’re both males.”
I think The Simpsons and The Office are quality television, and I enjoy binge watching good dramas.
I don’t like kale or mushrooms. I could eat Entenmann’s or Oreos all day. Sometimes I do. But I try not to.
I also like sports–especially baseball, and especially especially the Yankees–and cutting the grass, because it’s the only thing in my life where I actually see some progress.
And I have a dream job.
I’m a college professor. I have 4 months off in the summer, 4 weeks at Christmas, and on my “hard day” (Tuesdays) I teach 5 hours. I also love teaching young men and women.
I spent half my 20s and 30s in graduate school–first seminary then getting my PhD. I’ve been teaching, writing, and speaking about the Bible for over 20 years.
I like to ask questions and I don’t like quick, safe answers to make the hard questions go away.
I am an explorer. I’m wired to say, ”Yeah, but. . . .” I’ve gotten into trouble now and then for it.
And I love telling Bible stories.
Not the stories you might tell your children. In fact, not just stories that are in the Bible–although there’s that, too.
