Pastor Joe's new venture

When he was doing a callback voiceover for us a few weeks ago, Pastor Joe Wright spoke to me about his new calling: A church in downtown Wichita that is geared toward sheltering - and ministering to - the homeless.
It was far from a done deal then, but apparently there's been some major progress. Pastor Joe and "Church on the Street," which sits at Central and Market, are both prominently featured the Wichita Eagle this weekend. I encourage you to check out the article, which includes a couple of videos.

A secret you'll learn only from reading this blog

In the opening scene of "Out Here In Kansas," there's a pinch of Copenhagen under my bottom lip. Because I don't speak, you may not notice it, but it's there.
I haven't dipped tobacco for seven months now. So I hope you'll forgive me for feverishly chomping on gum in this later scene (pictured) in which I'm listening to Burt in an Iowa hospital.
I'm not proud of either habit ... but there you have it.
