David M. Guion, CED editor and writer, was raised in a church-going family, but met Jesus personally only after he started graduate school. He has been a member of churches of various denominations and now serves as a certified lay speaker in the United Methodist Church. He has taught adult Sunday school classes and led worship for more than 40 years.
A retired librarian, David has a doctorate in musicology and a distinguished record of academic publication: two books on the history of the trombone and about two dozen articles and reviews in professional journals. He has worked with various style guides and is especially familiar with Chicago Manual of Style. He also writes four blogs, including Grace and Judgment, and is a member of Faithwriters.
David currently resides in Greensboro, North Carolina, with two spoiled rotten little dogs and enjoys writing and editing, leading a Bible study, and serving as principal trombonist in a local community orchestra.
