A Postscript to My July 25, 2017 Blog About Wealth and Value

A valued friend…and to think even though the same Stanford graduating class and we’re both from the Portland area, we only met in the last few years…is Peter Jurney. He “scribes” for our class. He sings in the choir at their Lake Oswego Methodist Church where my cousin, Wally Herder sang. I met Peter at Wally’s Memorial Service.

In any account, Peter helped extend my morning blog about people who are wealthy and what they value. Needed to share because it points out what I consider a point more than salient. It’s about immigration. Peter shared and so I now know more, which is a fine thing, that Steve Jobs’ father was a Syrian immigrant. My goodness, if he had been banned from our country…in the best term, sad. In a very important valued term, ‘Trump?….”

Thanks, Peter…I’m the better for my new knowledge…but, even more, the “way better” for your friendship.



About Mark H Miller

Diane and I live in Leander, Texas. This past June 17, 2015 I celebrated the 49th anniversary of my ordination. We returned to Texas after three years in Washington, during which I served as interim minister in Bellevue/Eastgate and Mercer Island. Am planning to begin a 5th novel that will have my protagonist, Tricia Gleason, serve a year in licensed ministry in Snoqualmie, Washington. The novel, "The Lemon Drop Didn't Melt," will find Tricia wrestling with ministry challenges. None of which more daunting than someone wanting her breathing to stop. All the published novels are available on Amazon and Amazon Kindle under Mark Henry Miller. A primary goal in our return to Texas is to make sure grandchildren get lots of attention--here and in Chicago and Washington, D.C. Traveling is definitely an activity that will not slow down. With that, of course, fishing will happen. To that the t-shirt is apt, "I fish; therefore I am." In addition to novels, the book of Blogs, "Voice Of My Heart," is also available on Amazon.
