Christopher over at Thanksgiving in All Things http://thanksgivinginallthings.blogspot.com/2008/01/history-meme.html#links tagged me with this meme. I'll edit it with my answers later--I couldn't figure out how to get a lin--perhaps because this is lj and not Blogspot??


1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. List 7 random/weird things about your favorite historical figure.
3. Tag seven more people at the end of your blog and link to theirs.
4. Let the person know they have been tagged by leaving a note on their blog.

2008 Presidential Candidate Matching Quiz
Today, at it's annual diocesan convention in Bangor, the (Episcopal)Diocese of Maine elected a Bishop-Co-adjutor who will come on board and succeed +Chilton Knudsen when she retires next year.

We elected the Very Rev. Steven Lane, Canon for Clergy Deployment and Outreach in the Diocese of Rochester. More here: http://www.bishopofmaine.org/

We elected overwhelmingly on the first ballot. I'm THRILLED!
13th-Aug-2007 10:58 am - Sermon, again
Apparently the audio link to my sermon on July 29th doesn't work. Let's see if these do:

Go to this page and click on the audio for July 29th. The text is on this page as well.


Alernately, go to:

On the site, click worship. Then click Sermons, bulletins, etc. Then click on audio for July 29. Text on same page.
5th-Aug-2007 04:16 pm - Preaching and teaching
So I preached at St. Georges last Sunday (7/29). The audio of the sermon is up on the web page:

Hopefully, I'll have tthe text up tomorrow or Tuesday.

It was a really kick to preach again--it may be only the second time I've preached a realsermon at St. George's in the entire 5+ years I've been there--lots of children's sermons and Godly Play stories, though. My meditation for Wednesday in this past Holy Week is also on the website.

This summer has been a bit crazed. I'm trying to sort out a parish internship for next year, working with three colleagues from my CPE group of last year to start a spiritual care and support team for the Gibson (Oncology Floor) nurses at Maine Medical Center in Portland. Working Saturdays and Sundays on the housekeeping staff here: http://www.dunesonthewaterfront.com/ And dealing with my partner working on changing jobs for something closer to home. The employment situation is a mess. It's giving me grey hair and agida! Prayers would be good.
Liberation theologian and teacher, Letty Russell, died on Thursday, July 12th at her home in Connecticut. Her obituary from the Yale Divinity School website is here:


I'm certain I can't add much to the obit, except to say that I am saddened that she is no longer here for another shalom meal, another gathering, another lecture, another book. I have fond memories of shalom meals at Letty and Shannon's--the first was early in the fall of 1981, I believe, my first year at YDS.

A friend had this link on his website. So this is how it came out...anyone surprised??

You are The High Priestess

Science, Wisdom, Knowledge, Education.

The High Priestess is the card of knowledge, instinctual, supernatural, secret knowledge. She holds scrolls of arcane information that she might, or might not reveal to you. The moon crown on her head as well as the crescent by her foot indicates her willingness to illuminate what you otherwise might not see, reveal the secrets you need to know. The High Priestess is also associated with the moon however and can also indicate change or fluxuation, particularily when it comes to your moods.

13th-Apr-2007 01:40 pm - The War in Iraq comes Home

Sue called me at the hospital yesterday to let me know that her friend, Mo, had called to say that her little brother, Adam, had been killed in Iraq. His obit is linked above. We met Adam briefly in June of 2004 when Mo got him to chauffeur for the girls night out go-cart racing party she'd organized before our wedding. He had just graduated from Norwich, and was getting ready to go off to Basic Training. It was clear to me then that he was excited to be going to basic, and was looking forward to serving in Iraq, de-fusing bombs. While I was glad that he was going to realize his dream, I was of course, concerned for him. He died doing what he wanted to be doing, but what a waste!

May Adam rest in peace, and may God grant his family the comfort and peace that only comes from the sure and certain hope of the Resurrection.
14th-Mar-2007 03:38 pm - Preaching in Holy Week
I'm scheduled to preach Wednesday evening in Holy Week. Here's the collect for the day:

Lord God, whose blessed Son our Saviour gave his body to be whipped and his face to be spit upon, give us grace to accept joyfully the sufferings of the present time, confident of the glory that shall be revealed; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

I have a colleague who says, "Coincidence is God's way of remaining anonymous." Whaddya think???
