Loving the World with Words

Archives & other writing

“That love is all there is, is all we know of love”

– Emily Dickinson

Over the years, most of the writing I've done has been in the ministry. Sermons and services, weddings, funerals, baby dedications, even house blessings and rituals of letting go.

But often I have also been called upon to write in the service of another good goal; social justice, education, theological reflection or discernment.

These writings are a part of my lifework and not wholly separate from the art of ministry, so I've included them here.
