About Bob

Where is your favorite place to eat in Athens?
There are so many good, top-notch places to eat in Athens! One I like a lot is Homemade on Baxter street. The only disappointment I’ve encountered with this restaurant is trying to get a great dish I had before and not being able to as they change their menus weekly. Always something new and always great!

What fills your days when you’re not serving at GS?
Favorite activities of mine include: Helping out in the community, Getting out in the woods on my mountain bike, studying and playing guitar (I’ve been a professional beginner for over fifty years now, kinda like my line dancing), going to the gym, taking naps when I can, and spending time with Lynn in the evenings.

What is your favorite thing about GS? My favorite thing about Good Shepherd are the great folks who gave me an opportunity to serve the Lord and them in what I sincerely hope is a meaningful way!


Favorite passage of scripture, catechism question or hymn? Some of my favorite scriptures are: Ephesians 6: 10-20 which powerfully identifies the source of our spiritual opposition and reminds us of the way we are to defend ourselves and attack the enemy. And, finally that we find strength and courage for ourselves and others through prayer.
In Philippians 4: 4-8, I’m reminded that I should be joyous and not troubled despite the happenings of this world because we haven’t been abandoned, the Lord is near!
