Ministry

I hope the images and writings here give you an accurate view of the spiritual foundation, life experience, education, skills, and commitments that would shape my work with your congregation. 

Given the move to the web, I am providing information for you here online. There is much more of course, and I will be happy to share more should your interest warrant.

In my ministry, I offer:

❧  Sermons, workshops, seminars, and services to provide insight and comfort, inspiration and direction;

❧  Encouragement of truth-seeking, self-awareness, values clarification, competence and productivity;

❧  Promotion of spiritual practice, for individual happiness and for the creation of collaborative worship services;

❧  Leadership and support in community, political, and environmental work;

❧  Skill in helping manage the resources and finances of the congregation;

❧  A trained outsider’s eye to identify unhelpful practices, solve problems and make plans;

❧  Counsel and support in the sustenance of human relationships, including congregational health and numbers, and the religious needs and concerns of children and adults of all ages;

❧  Steadfast commitment to peace, inclusion, tolerance, environmental stewardship, and the liberating and empowering effect of education on individuals and society;

❧  Historical knowledge and poetry, and their application to what is “past, passing, or to
come.”
