About Lawrence Anderson

Man's chief end is to glorify God and to enjoy him forever.

I value chess as a paradigm of life. It is infinite (nearly so) in its possibilities. The future always lies ahead. It does little good to grieve too long for the past since once a move is made it cannot be taken back. The chess player must live with the conditions which now stand due to past decisions. All is not lost when a mistake is made. Future good decisions can overcome the weaknesses of the past. A well played game brings much satisfaction. So it is in life. The future lies before us, mistakes can be overcome, we must live with the situation that accrues from past decisions and a life well lived provides its own satisfaction at the end of our days.

The one thing that must be done before it is too late is to make our peace with God, the Creator of the universe and all life. He has reached out to us. Will we grab His hand?

I became a Christian in 1964 and have never regretted it. I married my beloved wife in 1968. She is a gift from God. We have three daughters. The oldest is married and has given us two grandsons. The youngest is also married and has given us three granddaughters and one grandson. Each one is also a great gift from God. My most important task in life is to live honorably before God, my family and the rest of the world. I carry this philosophy into my chess competition and in all other activities of my life, including my political and economic philosophies and actions and the many and varied vocations I have called my career.
