BioBorn before WWII finished–about half-way through; I have enjoyed living, learning, leisure, serving/working in my homeland and a few other countries.  Dorothy and I have three grown family, two of them (+ mokupunas) live around the world; one still on the island … my hair’s still “somewhat black” … reading, time with people, learning, empowering others to grow their Christian spirituality habits/disciplines are main passions with me.
Other CommentsChristian spirituality is more than an idea; it is the ultimate social behavior of Christ followers. Spiritual formation is “the process being conformed to the image of Christ for the sake of others” . . .  When intentional mentoring, supervision, spiritual direction or coaching interactions seek-out our “yes, but how?” questions/reflections–intentions are progressively actualized.
