A Deacon’s Musing: Lent|Vignette (McCrae’s Table)

“We’re going to see McCrae” “We’ve been talking with McCrae” “Are you meeting with McCrae?” These are just a few of the ways the people of the Stone Church refer to me. There’s more than one of my kin in their midst. We’re a pretty simply bunch. Usually four legs and a flat top. Not Read more…

A Deacon’s Musing: Lent|Vignette (The Microphone)

Please, I know you might think it’s cool or hip, but don’t drop the mic! We’re resilient, but we never do well when competing with gravity. Even worse, please don’t throw us. We’re a fine example of well designed technology that helps you be heard. Just like you, our internal organs really aren’t meant to Read more…

A Deacon’s Musing: Lent|Vignette (Gunn’s Stone)

Time moves slowly. Beneath me a life – once lived – slowly gives itself back so something else will be. Its thoughts and choices, celebrations and regrets, a memory kept by some, lost by others. Here I stand, witness and marker, as time slowly moves from then to now to then again. Trees and birds, Read more…

A Deacon’s Musing: Lent:Vignette (A Garden)

Without a community, it is nearly impossible to achieve voice: it takes a village to raise a Rosa Parks.

In Read more…

A Deacon’s Musing: Lent|Vignette (An Ant)

Where have you been this year & where might you be going? What are the things that have kept your journey on pause? What are the choices Read more…

A Deacon’s Musing: Leadership|From Sage to Guide: Nimble in Chaos

I am most fortunate in the ministry in which I find myself. A significant portion of my role falls under the umbrella of leadership. Though that may seem like a broad-stroke, maybe even ambiguous, description, what it means to me is that I get to think about, reflect upon, engage in wonderful conversations and imagine Read more…

A Deacon’s Musing: Leadership|Evangelism: The 21st Century

Social media: we hear a lot about it now. Often, from the church context, discussions about social media are not affirming. Such discussions tend to focus on the political (i.e. Fake News) and frequently highlights the Inside/Outside tension. Though a large gloss, for those raised and formed inside the church, at the worst the digital Read more…

A Deacon’s Musing: Leadership|Inside & Outside: No Longer the Same

I am most fortunate in the ministry in which I find myself. A significant portion of my role falls under the umbrella of leadership. Though that may seem like a broad-stroke, maybe even ambiguous, description, what it means to me is that I get to think about, reflect upon, engage in wonderful conversations and imagine Read more…
