The Time has come to say 


July 11, 2014

Many have written to me, some to find out what happened, others to rub salt into a very painful wound.  (Not that I didn't deserve it.)
To all, I say, if I have ever harmed you or your faith in any way, please pray for me, and try to find it within your heart to forgive me.  I am and always was, a terrible sinner, very undeserving of any leniency.  
To those who have been so kind and faithful to me, I have felt your prayers in my heart.  For that, I am grateful.  Those prayers have kept me alive for "one more day" so that I will have time to repent.  
Perhaps, God willing, we shall meet on the other side of the Jordan.
All my love to all,


Dear friends,
It is with sadness and heavy heart that I am closing Desert Fathers Incense.  It is so painful to say "goodbye" but the time has come for me to move on and to embark on a new journey.  
For many years, DFI has been one of the biggest blessings of my life, but I have other roads to follow and other adventures to create.
I wish you all a very fond farewell.
Warmest wishes,

We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and that you will pray for us in our mission, as stated below.

One Hope - One Love - One Peace,
