Weekends would find James looking for arrow points along the Potomac River or digging for bottles from old abandoned dump sites. James currently resides in Brunswick, MD with his wife Monica. In his limited free time, James pursues a political science degree from the University of Maryland, metal detects, researches, writes and excavates for ghosts. Known as a primary source on Brunswick area history, James conducts much research on area families and area properties. He assists the local government with historical research and often contributes to a local weekly newspaper column titled, "Living in the Past".
James was introduced to the ghost excavation methodology in the summer of 2012. Since then, he has participated in ghost excavations at the Brunswick Railroad Museum, Antietam Battlefield, Knickerbocker Hotel, Gettysburg and Centraiia, PA. He has presented at the annual Ghost Excavation conference and at Virginia Paraquest.

Shalom and Welcome! Today we remember each and every American life lost ten years ago to evil. The bloodiest day in United States History was September 17, 1862 when 4,700 Union and Confederate soldiers died in the Civil War battle of Antietam. That was until September 11, 2001, when over 3,900 innocent civilians were killed in a well planned terrorist attack. By comparison, 2,388 Americans were killed at Pearl Harbor, and 1,465 Americans were killed the first day of the Normandy invasion. As a result of September 11, 2001, our nation has declared war on terror, and indeed, we are at war. But it is a war unlike those our nation has previously known. This enemy is elusive and cowardly. This will be a long, drawn-out affair. It will inevitably take its toll on our country. Not only are our armed forces in harm’s way, but civilians here at home are also potential targets of the enemy in this war we are involved in. Today we will be examining Paul's encouragment to believers, and how we can be prepared for difficult days. *If you have any questions or comments about today's message, please post them below or click here to contact us.
