Pastor Jim Robinson was born in St. Louis, Missouri, on December 26, 1946. He was raised Lutheran and got into the ministry because his uncle was a pastor. His Mom and dad were both in the Navy, he was Army (blended family)

Jim graduated from seminary in 1972 and started his new profession in MO. He joined the Army 21 June 1977 and served as a chaplain. He served all over the world and retired in 2005 after 28-1/2 years and then he came to Colorado. Jim was the chaplain that blessed the first five bodies off the USS Cole.

Jim was Pastor of Christ Lutheran Church until his near fatal injury, now he is an Associate Pastor and tends after one of the greatest sinners of all time, Doug Harder. Jim was a disaster response guru for his area and helped a lot with the mess in New Orleans, along with Doug. He still has no memory between Oct and Nov 2007.

Jim has one sister, along with two children and two grandchildren with his wife, Vicki whom he married 6 Aug. 1972. Parchen claimed credit for arresting Harder the first time, putting him on the road to Deaconship. Doug Harder brought Jim into the club.


Program:  Doug introduced Angie Knoth, a Clinical Social Worker at Ft. Logan (and his neighbor). Angie grew up in Tennessee and attended the University of Tennessee. She took a graduate program in social work. She interned in hospitals doing general medical work, all the stuff no body else would do. She moved to Colorado and attended CU in general medicine and burn and trauma. Most burns are self inflected, either from substance abuse, mental illness etc. Angie said she gets lots of threats and has to practice Verbal Judo.

Clinical social workers provide mental health services for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of mental, behavioral, and emotional disorders in individuals, families, and groups. Their goal is to enhance and maintain their patients' physical, psychological, and social function.

Social Workers started in the 1800’s in the S.W. part of the country, helping immigrants and the poor. Now, they help kids, adults, the disabled, therapy, crisis situations like 911 or Katrina.

Educational requirements:
Clinical social workers must have a master's or doctorate degree in social work, with an emphasis on clinical experience. They must undergo a supervised clinical field internship and have at least 2 years of postgraduate supervised clinical social work employment.

Observations on Growing Older  

~Your kids are becoming you...and you don't like them ...but your grandchildren are perfect!

~Going out is good. Coming home is better!

~When people say you look "Great"... they add "for your age!"

~When you needed the discount you paid full price. Now you get discounts on everything .. movies, hotels, flights, but you're too tired to use them.

~You forget names ... but it's OK because other people forgot they even knew you!!!

~The 5 pounds you wanted to lose is now 15 and you have a better chance of losing your keys than the 15 pounds.

~You realize you're never going to be really good at anything .... especially golf.

~Your husband is counting on you to remember things you don't remember .

~The things you used to care to do, you no longer care to do, but you really do care that you don't care to do them anymore.

~Your husband sleeps better on a lounge chair with the TV blaring   than he does in bed. It's called his "pre-sleep".

~Remember when your mother said "Wear clean underwear   in case you GET in an accident"? Now you bring clean underwear  in case you HAVE an accident!

~You used to say, "I hope my kids GET married .. Now, "I hope they STAY married!"

~You miss the days when everything worked with just an "ON" and "OFF" switch..

~When GOOGLE, ipod, email, modem .. were unheard of, and a mouse was something that made you climb on a table.

~You used to use more 4 letter words .. "what?"..."when?"  ???

~Now that you can afford expensive jewelry,   it's not safe to wear it anywhere.

~Your husband has a night out with the guys but he's home by 9:00 P.M. week it will be 8:30 P.M.

~You read 100 pages into a book   before you realize you've read it.

~Notice everything   they sell in stores is "sleeveless"?!!!

~What used to be freckles   are now liver spots.

~Everybody whispers.

~Now that your husband has retired ... you'd give anything if he'd find a job!

~You have 3 sizes of clothes in your closet ... 2 of which you will never wear.

~~~~But old is good in some things: old songs, old movies And best of all OLD FRIENDS!!
