in a whisper, by the realization received that I don’t really matter, or rather that I have my place in all that is without all the crazy striving the accomplishing the pushing the transmuting of be into do, the feathering of my own nest.
The best truth comes unbidden just knowing without learning that the best feathers have always been not those I have carefully collected and examined identified and named, but instead the ones that simply drifted down unbidden through life’s air and landed in their comfort, where they are meant to be according to the Love who every morning is challenged, and every evening repeats as the light dies, nevertheless, this shall be.
A native of the North Shore of Boston, I currently live in Worcester County, Massachusetts. I worked at Boston College as the Acting Director of The Church in the 21st Century Center until August, 2010 and served until November 2016 as Canon for Formation, and Dean of the George Mercer Jr. School of Theology of the Diocese of Long Island. I was happy to serve as Rector at the Church of Saint Anselm of Canterbury in Shoreham, New York from late 2016 to early 2020. I began service as Rector of The Church of Saint Matthew in the city of Worcester on the first day of the fateful month of 2020.
