Dave Maier is the president of the Michigan District of the Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod and he's on Twitter where he's worth following. He can be reached here where you can find his tweets: http://twitter.com/bigskymaverick
He's a real guy with a family, a pastor and the head of a large church body in a very troubled part of the country. He's youngish, a cancer survivor, has a young son who's a cancer survivor and he's hitting his stride as a micro-blogger. He reeks of hope in Jesus Christ.
He also has a blog, Fighting Forward, that's worth adding to your Google reader. I invite you to join my friend and former pastor in a conversation about life and about where real hope lies.
