There seems to be some confusion as to my identity as of late, so I’d like to take a few minutes and clear that up. I am a real boy. Joel Watts is not Mister Geppetto. My name is of course Scott Fritzsche. I am not a pseudonym, pen name, nom de plume, alias, stage name or even sobriquet of Joel Watts. Going back over this, it seems ridiculous that I even need to say that, but I digress. I will turn 40 later this year, I live in the greater Columbus, Ohio area and am an active member in good standing with my local UMC. I do not represent them in any official capacity other than of course being a member and the privileges and responsibilities that come with that.

Joel and I have not met in person as of yet, but I am hopeful that we will be able to this summer. He invited me to blog with him here and after some consideration I decided that I would. I am not as regular with it as I would like to be, but I am trying to get on a more regular schedule. I would consider myself a brother in Christ with Joel as well as a friend in so much as one can be a friend without physical presence. I respect his opinions, even when we disagree, which we do. The thing that makes that disagreement possible while maintaining brotherhood is the faith that we share.
OK I think this answers the questions that were asked. It seems insane that I need to do this but there we go…if you happen to have further questions, feel free to shoot me a message via Facebook and I will try to answer to the best of my ability and willingness.
