a little more info for those who are curious…

I have recently retired and still learning what this will mean. Prior to retirement, I worked as Director of Christian Formation and Education (assistant priest) of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Greenville, NC and served as a hospital chaplain.IMG_2491

As I begin this new path on life’s journey, my blog will highlight week-to-week thoughts, prayers, and resources I hope might benefit others.

This is my personal blog, and therefore the opinions that I express here are mine, and mine only.

Most important — this is a place of invitation for insights and reflections to be shared with other seekers. When you close your eyes, may there be an image quiet and open for refreshment and renewal.

When you are ready — may your bench have room to share.

    Hi Carrie,

    I read your article on Sharon Pearson’s blog. I’d love information about reading the entire Gospel of Mark in one seating. I am a seminarian and would like to do this with a group of people at my church.

    Thanks so much for sharing.

    In peace and gratitude,

      Hi Wendy!

      Thanks for writing. I would be happy to share more information about ‘The Reading of the Gospel’. I will send a note tomorrow through your email address. We can chat from there.
