About Me

My photo
I work as a teacher, poet and spiritual director at a number of institutions in the DC area. My teaching focuses in various ways on writing, poetry, Spirituality and Christian vocation and ministry - especially from the point of view of the laity. I also offer classes and retreats encouraging people to explore their inner lives, engage their creativity and reflect on their beliefs about God, vocation, and how we can discern and pursue new ways to transform our broken world. I enjoy speaking of faith in the secular academy as well as reminding those preparing for ministry in the Church that our primary purpose is to love and serve the world beyond the church's doors. I love helping people to grow in faith and to find their own voices, and I also love encouraging them to use their minds. I see no contradiction between these impulses, believing as I do that faith, reason and creativity work together.

Reading God's Novel - the latest Faith@Work

I was pleased to see another bit of writing I've done about discernment and vocation in the latest issue of Faith @ Work magazine . I've linked to the .pdf version (see p. 5) because the print version also includes a poem with the writing, which is not included in the online text of the article.

This particular issue is full of good insights on call and self-knowledge, including some good excerpts from by Elizabeth O'Connor and Parker Palmer, classic writers on the experience of vocation.

You can also find an online version of the journal on the website of Faith at Work.
