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.

Eric’s sermon so richly complements his commentaries from his week at Presbytery and his insights, gut reactions, frustrations and interpretation of things. This sermon so strongly speaks to faithfulness and perseverance. We missed last Sunday’s worship because we were delivering grandchildren back to Oklahoma from their summer vacation and are grateful for being able to hear the full, intense sermon. Sometimes just listening to it like this and not in person removes the distractions of a live service. In any event, it is great we have this advantage to hear the real thing — and that it comes from a man of deep faith and intellect.
I’m glad you made your delivery safely. I’m touched by your words and your trust in me. Thank you.
