Hi, my name is Don Wicks. I am a retired pastor and professor who lives in Ontario, Canada. In this blog, I will share some of my thoughts on what it means to live the abundant life that Jesus Christ promised in John 10:10b. As this site develops, there will be “Short Thoughts” (meditations on the scriptures, each with a practical application), and some children’s stories called “Stories by Grandpa”, and maybe, in due time, even some “Explorations” and “Sermons” (longer investigations of a scripture passage or theme). Almost all the photos used, by the way, are ones taken by either my wife or I. Thanks for stopping by.
