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.

A day I will never forget. Went to our 8 a.m. worship service. It’s a very modest service, no music—prayers, scripture, sermon and Holy Communion. It’s led, most often, by Bob Gribble, Associate Priest. Bob has been so endearing to … Continue reading

Imperfections, Anyone?

Before the quote, jump on him. Labeled the “bleakest quote” after yesterday’s Super Bowl, a Ram lineman said this, Rams tackle Andrew Whitworth on the Super Bowl: “At the end of the day we’re all gonna die” First glance, maybe … Continue reading

Ah, Friendships Abound!

I am more aware than ever how important my friends are. From all points in any direction you’d point, they live. But, more important, they live in my heart. I know. I appreciate friends more than I ever have. And, … Continue reading

Life Is More Than Picking Up Garbage

Some experiences I forget—too many to admit publicly. But, the linked article triggered many enriching and blessed memories I’ll remember well beyond my last breath. It was this: how many customers appreciated Hank Miller, my father. I don’t know how … Continue reading

Best 15 Minute Sermon

I remember. And it got laughs. Most of the time. When in conference ministry, I’d drive to each church from my Austin home…well, always flew to New Orleans and some time to Houston. Still, the drive was always at least … Continue reading
