A Deacon’s Musing: #MicroPoetry|January ’18 Verses

As solar dance spirals from old to new pause As solstice retreats and sol’s warmth tenderly renews breathe In resolutions tempting simply Be Inspired by new year’s unfolding …

A Deacon’s Musing: Vignette|Font

It spread … it spread really fast. There, in the middle of the church, well if you could recognise it as such, the Font stood. Seared and scorched, every wall, floorboard and all that still resembled the mundane and intimate, the structural and the decorative body of a building cried out in sooted, water-soaked scars.

A Deacon’s Musing|Community Connexions

What does community mean to you? How has it shaped you? How have you shaped it? Has it been soul-devouring? Has it been a life-giving experience?

A Deacon’s Musing: #MicroPoetry|November ’17 Verses

Every month I tweet #MicroPoetry! In 140 characters, they are part prayer, thought, reflection, challenge or something in-between. I look forward to sharing them with you and hope that they may lead to reflection, musing and perhaps even discussion!

A Deacon’s Musing|Change #2

The first blog that shared this title – Change – was written about four and half years ago. I wrote it is as I walked into my current role with the United Church of Canada. Since then, I’ve certainly mused a significant amount about change. As I was reflecting on this body of work, I recognised two things: Read more…

A Deacon’s Musing: Appreciative Principles|Free Choice

Working on this eighth addition to the Appreciative Principles series was filled with distractions.

A Deacon’s Musing|The Struggle

I recently attended an ecumenical ministerial gathering (which means Christian clergy from different traditions) for fellowship and discussion. During our meal, we were discussing the reality that we live in a time in which fear is feeding shadows of discord. In these places of us/them, right/wrong, it can feel difficult to make space to listen Read more…

Every month I tweet #MicroPoetry! In 140 characters, they are part prayer, thought, reflection, challenge or something in-between. I look forward to sharing them with you and hope that they may lead to reflection, musing and perhaps even discussion!  

A Deacon’s Musing|#MeToo

I am the child of a survivor. When I called my parent to share what I was considering writing about for this week’s musing, I did so with a deep respect and awareness of what a survivor walks with every and each day. I remember the nightmares waking me and the moments of extreme fragility Read more…

A Deacon’s Musing: Appreciative Principles|Enactment

Sure, maybe it was slogan-like, though I admit I am not sure if my mother said it after the Nike campaign or if she coined it and they stole it! Regardless, there I was 16, not wanting to do the homework that was assigned. It was a long weekend and I just wanted to get Read more…
