Dear folks:
It is with joy and humility that I accept the call to be the Priest in Charge at St. Mark’s. St. Mark’s has
had a special place in my heart since I did my field education time there in 1998/1999 with Dean
Taylor as my supervisor. I was a student at The University of the South Seminary, and although that
was more or less a million years ago, I have never forgotten that time. In a sense, I began to learn
what it means to be a priest during that year at St. Mark’s.
Some time has passed, and I have now been ordained for almost fifteen years. Lots of experience,
lots of adventures, joys and sorrows have accrued in my life, as I know they have in yours. After over
seven years serving as Rector of St. Clement’s Episcopal Church in St. Paul, a wonderful call that I
have cherished, I am beyond excited to be turning my attention to the work of moving to Georgia.
My daughter, Margaret, dog Oscar and cat Sabrina are pretty excited too. Well, to be truthful, I
might be making an assumption about the pets, but they will just have to go along.
I am looking forward to our first year of getting to know one another, to sharing stories, listening,
having a joyful time, and worshipping God. After that, we will know how to chart the next year together, knowing that we will be working on ways to engage God’s mission at St. Mark’s and in Dalton, living out the gospel good news in our relationships and actions in the world.
So, friend me on Facebook, email me at [email protected], send me notes and advice on
moving…..I’m looking for a house y’all! Can’t wait to meet you.
In faith, and with hope in our Risen and Living Lord Christ,
Honor a loved one with a donation for Easter.
Please place your order in the offering plate or bring it to the
church office by Thursday, April 10. A form may be found
on the last page of this document and
in the Sunday bulletins beginning Lent 3.
