I have always known myself to be an encourager, helping people recognize the hope and love of God in their lives, as He had shown me.

As the autumn season begins, many church—and personal—schedules begin to fill up. Days grow shorter and the list of to-do’s only increase as we inch towards forthcoming holidays.

As a deacon, I am one who serves. And pastoral care has been a big part of that. Currently, I have been seeing parishioners on a one-on-one basis for coffee. I hear about spiritual journeys, and I always marvel at how God brings people from sometimes radically different backgrounds into our church. For me, this […]

As summer heat recedes and autumn breezes begin to cool, we are drawn into this annual time of harvest and hope. “What a timely opportunity to connect with the presence of God through the unique beauty of our local chaparral and to deepen our relationship with the place that we all call home!” said the […]

The first day of the Lambeth Conference was a retreat for bishops in the hallowed halls of Canterbury Cathedral.
