A view from the Pew

I reminisce about growing up in a country church and the social activities surrounding it and why I finally left organized religion but not faith.

Baskets and Caskets

Sometimes working at school at school it's not just things we do for the living. When a funeral is too big for the church they will have them in the high school gym. I have taken part in 3. This is my reflection on those and the things I have learned from them.

Sunset on the Prairie

My cousin Bob McPeek tells how he discovered the poems that his Dad wrote during WWII and how he used them to write the song "Sunset on the Prairie". This is a tribute to his dad and to the people who fought in the war. Please check out the song and video.

Auld Lang Syne

In this episode I recall some of my Christmas memories about our country church and my family. From waiting for people to come home to opening presents, this was a special time of year when I was a kid. Please come and listen to my tales of Christmas past.

The top  picture is one that my son Eric McPeek took. It is the alter of the Bethlehem Lutheran Church of Hague Township as it sits in the Clark County Historical Society. It was in the original building until the congregation was dissolved in 1993.

The other picture is from the front of the bulletin for our Centennial celebration.

Geeks 'R' Us

Kevin Allder and I sit down to talk about our early geekery and how we were able to do this while growing up in a rural environment. So break out the Twinkie's (if there are any out there), polish up your slide rules and listen to us trip down memory lane.
