My father James F. Cline was simply a “man of faith.” He loved the intersection of theology and the human condition; he was defined by his family and interpersonal relationships. He also as a brother, uncle, father, grandfather and great grandfather understood the role of God and trust in the midst of this human journey called life. He wrote many titled and untitled short stories, poems, humorous musings and reflective journaling over the years. My nearest sibling compiled many, I too have complied as much writings as could be found and reconstructed. As his son, it is my mission as his son to help continue my fathers legacy by introducing the world to many of his innermost thoughts about his love and reliance on God manifests itself through his writing.
