I am Pastor Emeritus of First Church of Christ in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, where I served for 22 years. Before that I served congregations in Maine and was a seminary chaplain.
I am a contributing writer for the United Church of Christ’s StillSpeaking Writers’ Group that produces the popular electronic Daily Devotional. You can sign up for it for free here. You can also find all my archived Daily Devotions by scrolling down the right side of this site.
“When I Survey . . .” contains some of my ruminations on a variety of topics, including, but not limited to, theology, pastoral ministry, the church, ecumenism, cooking, food and wine, the arts, books, films, music, poetry, politics, traumatic brain injury, New England Sports teams, memories, and the occasional rant.
I have also archived here many of my published and unpublished essays, book reviews, hymns, special-occasion sermons, papers and addresses from my four decades as a pastor-theologian. Glad you found me. Take a look around and come back anytime.
