From the Preacher 1.21.20

Dear St. Mark's, My sermon title for this week may seem silly. It's entitled, "Does Jesus Call Women Too?" I say it's silly because most of us at St. Mark's would respond, "um, of course!" You all are used to female leaders and I'm far from being the first female...

Dear St. Mark’s, I am so happy to be given the opportunity to preach for you this coming week.  Like several other lay preachers that have come before you in the last few months, this will also be my first time delivering an actual sermon.  I have given quite a few...

Dear friends, Welcome to 2020!  For those who made resolutions, I hope your resolve has been steadfast.  For those who made and forgot them, you are not alone.  And for those who haven’t made a resolution for any number of reasons, I offer a phrase I used to tell my...

Dear friends, I love sharing quotes in certain circumstances, but I often forget who said what and how they said it exactly.  That is why I rarely share quotes unless I can research them for accuracy.  Either Abraham Lincoln or Mark Twain said, “Better to remain...

Dear Church, I’m BACK!!! Thank you all, so very much, for the time you gave to me to recover from labor and bond with our newborn child, Ivy. Many of you have been asking me how it’s been going and my response is usually: it’s both wondrous and completely exhausting....

Dear friends, If you’ve been to any store lately you know the holidays are almost upon us!  For many of us this is a time of moving into overdrive as we plan meals, shopping trips, holiday parties, and family pictures.  Andy Williams will be heard singing in the...
