summer 2013 retreat(s)?


Dear All, I am seeking (and am optimistic about getting) full-time work this fall that will provide much-needed stability, but will make it much harder for me to do something I could do at various points this summer: A retreat. 5-15 people get together somewhere nice and spend time together breathing, praying, and falling in love -- again and/or more deeply -- with scripture such that it nourishes and energizes YOU in an enduring and contagious way. There would be plenty of time during a multi-day retreat for optional one-on-one and/or small-group conversation in a supportive, relaxed setting with plenty...

Christmas Day (Year A, Year B, Year C)


Dear readers, I want to apologize to you for three things. One is my not posting before now. I've been working seven days a week of late, and often double shifts (e.g., yesterday I worked from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.). Some folks here have been very generous, and several have ordered Guitar Center gear through me, and that's a huge help for which I'm deeply grateful. But it's clear that it's going to take a lot of hours to get me to the General Convention of my denomination (The Episcopal Church) this July -- a hugely (for me) expensive...

new posts probable soon -- with your help!


Please pardon a post here that's personal news combined with (gulp!) a commercial announcement (and one that I've all but duplicated on Grace Notes at that!). I've been to a few gatherings with large numbers of clergy lately, and have been honored and deeply encouraged in the work I do as a "paradigm planter" and public theologian by the profoundly gracious things that many have took me aside to say. And it's very clear to me now that a lot of people would love me to start adding new material once more to the lectionary blog. If you're one of...

announcing the obvious


Dear All, The good news is that I am planning to complete my Ph.D. dissertation this year, have signed contracts for two publications I'm really excited about, and am absolutely loving my work with IMPACT Boston -- teaching and coaching in assertiveness, boundary-setting, violence prevention, and self-defense in their regular classes (many of which, I'm gratified to say, take place in shelters for the homeless and for domestic violence survivors), certainly, but I'm also very glad to say that I've been working with IMPACT colleagues with experience in congregational ministry and violence prevention to craft a program called FaithIMPACT. FaithIMPACT...

Third Sunday in Lent, Year A


Romans 5:1-11 - link to NRSV text John 4:5-26(27-38)39-42 - link to NRSV text If you haven't seen it before, I encourage you to check out this reflection on the texts for this coming Sunday, the themes of which strike me as being as relevant as they were in 2005. I'm continuing to reflect on the texts, of course, and will see whether something new emerges that's worth sharing.
