Rev. Harvey Davis, chose multiple paths to serve the Lord, both beginning and ending in the Lutheran Church.

Harvey Davis is my fourth interview.  Harvey is the 'younger' brother of Rev. Louisa Groce, the third interview I've done.  (Though I had planned significantly more work being done over the summer, many of you know that I suffered a fall, infection, sepcis and four weeks of hospitalization while in South Africa.  After a med flight home, I spent one week in the hospital before 4 weeks in rehab and four weeks of home rehab, before getting back on the 'road' again.)  So please give Harvey some attention as he as a story of a journey of religious life and service, [LCMS-Synodical Conference as a youth, Reformed Episcopal priest, AME Minister, and retiring as an ELCA agency executive and pastor.]  October 2018 Update- Pr. Davis just published the story of his life at age 92,

"What me, be ordained?" said Louisa Groce, Ordained at 80 and still celebrating at 100...and counting...

Louisa Groce is the third interview.  With Louisa not being ordained until 80 we had a lot to talk about as she was raised in a Missouri Synod Mission church in Philadelphia.  I consciously audio and video taped the interview, and as the audio recorded malfunctioned. I still am able to use the audio track of the video.  It is nearly an hour long and is unedited, She had a lot to share.

Interview: Gary Costa, First Upsala/LTSP Program graduate.

Interview with Gary Costa is much more structured and focused on the leading questions.  Gary is in New Jersey and the first Upsala/LTSP student, still serving in his first church 20+ years later

Interviews: Michael Guy, retired Navy medic, said to the Field Ed. Dir., "I take liturgy seriously," An introduction to Father Guy.

Interview with Michael Guy was the first and it is unedited.  So you can see that I'm learning in the process as we meet and greet before beginning the questions that you have seen in previous documents.
