Thanks for stopping in. Pour yourself a cup o' jo, take a load off your feet, and check out what's here. You are looking at my ramblings about issues of faith, life and culture—they are my own and are not necessarily shared by those with whom I work, live or otherwise engage.

My journey has led my family and me across the country where I have been introduced to a lot of people and a lot of different ways of doing things. One passion, though, runs through all these experiences: building beloved and sustainable community. "Sustainable" community is kind of a strange notion, as communities (people) change constantly, and things are always in motion. So, the latest chapter of my life has led me to the notion of "impermanence"—not an idea that comes naturally in a culture that likes to build monuments to our greatness for future generations to view and admire. But, I'm trying to practice my awareness of impermanence—the idea that nothing is permanent, nothing is forever, and things are always in flux.

Feel free to share your comments and engage in any conversation that may be happening here, but just know that I do reserve the right to delete any spam or anything I deem inappropriate or offensive. I look forward to dialoguing with anyone who cares to dialogue!

Peace and blessings,

Scripture is a funny thing: we are charged to read it, ingest it, and make it a part of who we are as God’s children. Yet, there is so much that it is overwhelming to take it all in! Then […]

Taking It All In

It’s the evening of Palm Sunday. Today I preached a sermon on when Jesus, after entering Jerusalem in Mark 11, goes into the temple, looks at everything, and then leaves to meet with his friends. I can only imagine what Jesus was thinking as he entered the temple. The text tells us that it was late, so I imagine most of the people were gone.

Have you ever spent time in a sanctuary or holy […]
