Adobe houses and buildings have always been a favorite.

They are peaceful and powerful places.  

Many adobe buildings today are churches, haciendas and cantinas.

Tom Haley was born in Texarkana, Texas, on October 21, 1952, but grew up in Texarkana, Arkansas.

 

He is a 1970 graduate of Arkansas High School, a 1975 graduate of Hendrix College in Conway, Arkansas earning a bachelor’s degree in Religion and Sociology. Haley is also a 1979 graduate of Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas and earned a Masters of Theology.

 

Haley received a credit for Clinical Pastoral Education after he completed an internship as hospital chaplain at Parkland Hospital in Dallas.

 

He was ordained in the United Methodist Church of Arkansas and for ten years primarily served churches in the Delta. Haley left the ministry and became a columnist and reporter for The Benton Courier (now The Saline Courier.)

 

His column “Haley’s Comments” won several awards with the Arkansas Press Association. Haley is the author of several books including Haley’s Comments: A View of Life From Across the Street, Listen to the Wind, and God and Son, Inc.

 

Haley married Amanda Hopkins on February 14, 1989. They have three adult children and three grandchildren.

 

He returned to ministry after being out for about twenty-five years and wrote about his experiences in OUT OF MY DESERT: A Spiritual Biography.

 

Rev. Haley joined Manataka in 2011 after meeting Lee Standing Bear Moore. Later, he was asked to chair of THE MOMENT - A Worldwide gathering of people for peace.

 

He does nor claim any American Indian ancestry, but refers to himself as a “white man with a red heart.” His main focus in life has been to help bring about peace between all peoples.  He also sees the parallelism of Native American culture and Christianity in its purest sense. Peace is possible.
