New blog site

April 7, 2015

Hi!  It’s been a long time- looks like six years since my last post here.

I’m now the Rector of a parish in California, and just now starting a blog mostly oriented towards unchurched folk.  At least, that’s what I think it will be, but who knows.

If you’d like to check it out, please stop by!

The first post will go up tomorrow!



Yeah for California!!

May 23, 2008


Of course you’ve heard the news from California by now– there are plenty of sources to find the church’s reactions, good and bad, on it.

If you haven’t noticed, I’m slowing down on posting– I haven’t written much original material this year and am not likely to for a while.  Sign up for email subscription on the right if you don’t want to have to visit to see if I’ve posted everything.

I’m doing CPE (chaplaincy) this summer and then will turn my attention to my last year of seminary formation.  I’m sure something will prompt me to write every now and then, but I’m not going to make intentional efforts to keep the blog updated any more– at least for now.

Thanks for all your support, readership, and comments!


From Advocate News, about a story that my kids absolutely love…

“Gay penguin” book most hated, again

published Tuesday, May 6, 2008
A children’s story about a family of penguins with two fathers once again tops the list of library books the public objects to the most.”And Tango Makes Three,” released in 2005 and co-written by Justin Richardson and Peter Parnell, was the most “challenged” book in public schools and libraries for the second straight year, according to the American Library Association. The book is based on the true story of two penguins in New York’s Central Park Zoo who became a couple and fostered a third chick named Tango.
Read the rest here.

Sorry for the problems but WordPress is funky today and not behaving properly.  I guess that support is working on it.

Blogging Problems

November 21, 2006

Well, I have tried and tried to get the navigation bar to come back home to the top of the screen with no success.

I am assured that it has fallen to the bottom of the page due to a problem with my formatting somewhere in one of these posts.

After I’ve posted enough new topics, it should return to normal.

In the meantime, you’ll have to scroll down to find it.

I’ve got a coupla things I want to write about, but we’re in the middle of mid-terms right now so I haven’t been able…

Will try and get them up soon.  Your patience is appreciated!
