Fall Reflection

November 18, 2013    As I sit at my desk this morning, watching the sky darken and lighten, seeing the last leaves blowing on, and then off, the trees, I am mindful of how quickly this autumn season has gone by. I am preparing for this Sunday’s worship, and marveling at how it is already […]

President’s Message  It happened again.  I blinked, and the summer passed me by. I hate when that happens.

Earlier this month I spent a week in Truro, at the annual Atlantic Seminar in Theological Education (ASTE) event. For those unfamiliar with it, this is a wonderful week, held each year for the last 45 years, with a different theme each year. Every years since I’ve lived in the Maritimes — almost ten years, […]

So there I was… An introduction of sorts.

So there I was, minding my own business at a regular Presbytery meeting, over a year ago, when Fran Fiddes turned to me and said, “Why don’t YOU run for Conference President?” Well, truth be told, I wasn’t exactly minding my own business. As Chair of Truro Presbytery at the time, I was in the […]
