What does a young high school graduate do to pursue his interests that will occupy his life for as long as it may last? After co-oping in college and discovering a desire to study engineering, I graduated from Ohio State with a degree in ceramic engineering and spent my working career in the glass industry.
My first 10 years after graduations were in the San Francisco Bay Area where Jennifer and I first lived after we were married and both boys were born. We were members of Methodist, Presbyterian, and Baptist churches and it was a time of growth in my spiritual life. I taught Sunday school with junior age boys in Walnut Creek, and led an adult Bible study group in Modesto. When we moved to Indianapolis, both Jennifer and I were teachers in the Bethel Bible study, a series that was also taught at the time in Circleville.
