My name is Tom Beaman. When I was 38, as a confirmed skeptic of all things religious, I had a life-changing encounter with Jesus. Within a couple of years I sold my concert sound company and enrolled in Denver Seminary, preparing for a new career as a pastor and preacher. One of the biggest surprises for me was how rich and fascinating the study of the Bible can be when you strip away all the stuffiness and formality. It is astonishing that this collection of – individual writings, written by dozens of authors from differing cultural situations, over a span of hundreds of years, fits together with such precision. Recently retired, I’ve begun this blog as a way of continuing to share my love and amazement for God’s Word.
I live in Longmont, Colorado, am recently single, after the death of my wife of 47 years in 2015. We raised two kids and now have four grand-kids. My hobbies include camping, playing guitar, woodworking and baking bread.
PS – When I quote from the Bible, most of the time it will be from: The Holy Bible : New International Version. 1996, c1984, Grand Rapids: Zondervan.
Thanks Tom for this blog, Fresh Bread of Life. It is a treat and a joy for me to hear God speaking through you again. What a blessing! – Louie

PLANTING CHURCHES INSIDE MUSLIM COMMUNITY
Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ,
Greetings to you in the most precious name from our Lord Jesus Christ!
I am very glad to share with you that our Living God has filled my hearts with His burden & vision in in my life to reach specifically to the Muslims by The Gospel of Jesus Christ & plant House Churches inside Muslim community. While Muslim terrorist groups such as Islamic state , Taliban, Al Qaeda and Boko Haram are killing Christians in different countries, He is leading me to reach out to the Muslims for His own glory and help them to know that Jesus Christ is The Only Living God and Saviour.
I am facing lots of challenges and oppositions by the Militant Muslims but God has protected us and the believers for His own glory. The believers at our fellowship from Muslim background are constantly facing opposition from their own family members, relatives and Militant Muslims for their new faith in Christ.
The Militant Muslims tortures, beats, mocks, spat, try to burn believer’s houses for their new faith in Christ. The believers are reaching to their Muslim neighbors, relatives and militant Muslims in the midst of persecution & oppositions by His grace & mercies.
However, I humbly request you kindly pray for God’s protection in my life, family and the new believers from the hands of militant Muslims. Pray also for His wisdom and guidance in all our lives and ministry.

Seeing the pictures of your bread brings to mind the communion bread you shared at special services. I miss that.
Thanks, Elaine. Those were good days… Tom
Tom, you left Gothenburg EFree too fast today. I had to take my granddaughter to find her classroom. By the time I went to find to thank you for a wonderful sermon you were gone or at least I couldn’t find you. God has given you a great gift of communication, thank you for driving so far to feed the sheep in Gburg. My son is a Denver Seminary graduate.
How nice of you, Jenny, to persist and find me online. Your encouraging comments mean a lot. Where is your son serving? Denver Seminary really prepared me well. Sorry I missed meeting you. My email is Beaman2073@msn.com.
His truly, Tom
Hey Tom I need to buy you lunch. Jim Coleman 9-7-16
