About: Vocation (vocare: to call)
For the past twenty-seven years, I’ve been a pastor in Presbyterian churches — in Pittsburgh for seven, in Columbus, Ohio for thirteen, and in Elmira, New York since January 2003. It’s a calling that doesn’t always weigh easy on me, and yet I can’t conceive of myself as as doing anything else. As I have found my own particular way in this calling, I see myself as a worker in words and ideas for the building of the kingdom of God. That’s why this adventure in blogging seems like a good place for me to apply some of my energies.
