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,

Listening Ears and Open Eyes

Tomorrow around this time I will be heading Sky Harbor Airport here in Phoenix on my way to Pittsburgh, PA, to join thousands of others to witness the coming together of the 220th General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).

Identity Crisis in the PC(USA)

We are a little more than a week away from the 220th General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)., our biennial gathering of teaching and ruling elders to discern, discuss, and debate the will of God for our Church (go to PCBiz to see what’s on the agenda). Among the issues to be discussed: broadening our understanding of who can get married, divesting from companies who’s products are being […]

It’s Baaaaack!

My blog is back! I finally found a more thorough backup of my blog and was able to restore all my previous posts, and keep my newly somewhat updated theme style. Life is good.

I did not restore my sermon page, though. I figure going to the start of my new call was good enough. I hope you enjoy reading!

Peace!
