I am an ordained minister tending to congregations that are small and/or in a particularly intense phase of transition. I have fairly recently moved to part-time pastoral ministry in order to focus more deeply on those elements of ministry to which I feel called as change moves through our churches. I am pursing my D Min, writing in the area of pastoral leadership, “A Permeable Way; How Vulnerability Nourishes Pastoral Leadership” I am also involved in the Shalem Institute Program, Leading Prayer Groups and Contemplative Retreats and have recently joined the leadership team for Contemplative Pathways, formerly The Atlantic Jubilee Program. I offer invitation and support to those congregations and leaders who choose to engage in a governance developed while I was in ministry with Sackville United Church, Governance as Spiritual Practice. In this latter work I am supported by an Innovations Grant from the United Church of Canada through the EDGE network. All this to say, I am passionate about spiritual practice and story in our lives as faith community.
I invite you here, through word and image to offer the bowl of your heart.
