     And who am I?

I am an Episcopal priest, ordained in 1985 and now living into my third “retirement”.

From 1986 to 2006, I served as rector of two Episcopal parishes –
Christ Church in Oberlin, Ohio and St. Paul’s in Cambria, California.

After “retiring” from St. Paul’s in 1995, I served another ten years as Associate Priest at St. Benedict’s, Los Osos — preaching and leading discussions of the books and ideas that have stimulated my mind and touched my heart. (You’ll find many of those book studies on this blog.)

After “retiring” from St. Benedict’s in 2018, I’m now occasionally preaching and leading discussions at St. Patrick’s, Kenwood.  I’m also writing occasional reflections on my own life – a life lived in growing faith in the God of Jesus Christ.

Please consider joining these reflections, by adding your own comments as posts appear.
