Stepping into New Waters: Of Trout and Men

Welcome to this new WebLog, i.e. 'blog' for short, entitled Of Trout and Men, a play on the book title Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, and reminiscent of Robert Burns' famous line: "The best-laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men Gang aft agley," from his poem "To A Mouse, On Turning Her Up In Her Nest With The Plough."

Preaching and fishing, at least for me, are full of surprises.

The famous print in the heading is Fly Fishing, Saranac by
Winslow Homer.

In Christ,
