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.

Celebrating the Church of Our Saviour

Check out "Why I am an Anglican" , a post to the Episcopal cafe blog. It celebrates my home congregation, the Episcopal Church of Our Saviour, Hillandale in Silver Spring. The author is my friend Kit Carlson, a former member of the congregation and now an Episcopal priest. She visited us in Silver Spring recently and her post celebrates much of what I have loved about being part of the congregation at Our Saviour -- for over 17 years now!
