    Hello everyone! :wavey:
    My name is Steve Owen and I live in the beautiful South West of England.
    I am married to Jan and have three grown-up (most of the time!) children.

    I am a deacon at Scott Drive Church in Exmouth, Devon
    www.scottdrivechurch.org.uk , and am also an itinerant preacher at some of the little evangelical churches in the area as well as being a member of Gideons Int.

    My nom de plume of Martin Marprelate is the name I use on my blog www.marprelate.wordpress.com The name originated in the 16th Century and was used by a writer of pamphets attacking the Bishops of the Church of England.

    I'm looking forward to getting to know folk better, and to having some helpful and interesting discussions. :thumbs:

    Welcome aboard. I've visited Devonshire and found it a beautiful place. Can you send us all some clotted creams?:smilewinkgrin:

    My wife is British, but not from your part. Family origins are in Kent; she was born in Bath, where her father was a pastor; and then grew up in Yorkshire. Came to the USA in 1953.
