Some thoughts on church,
and postmodernism,
and how it is that we find integrity and wholeness
in our varied forms of worship
and understandings of God.

An Entry Point

I've organized this blog chronologically from its inception, which is backwards from how most blogs are organized. Basically that means that the dates you see for each post to the right are imaginary. Don't worry about it. They show up in the right order...think of the "older posts" link as a "next" button.

And a BIG THANKS! to those who were willing to be interviewed, and who offered suggestions. You're really good sports, and I'm glad to know you (even though I've only ever really met Jay Voorhees, and I'm not sure that we did more than show up at the same seminar once).


Thought for today

It's been an interesting week. Last Saturday Ben presided over the funeral of my stepmother, feeling acutely the pressure of ministering to (without offending) my agnostic father and Wiccan stepsister. Today I met with the local Presbyterian and Unitarian ministers, and we talked about our sermons. It's interesting the theological differences we have and don't have, and the varying topics of our sermons. The Unitarian tells us about the topic of her sermon. The Presbyterian is preaching a long series on Hosea and connecting its themes to our times. And I am the faithful lectionary girl, at least for this week. Yet somehow, I know that there will be people in each sanctuary who feel God speaking to them through us. That's pretty good stuff.

About Me

My photo
I am a United Methodist (UM) pastor, married to a UM pastor, which makes life entertaining from time to time. I am a newly minted D. Min--yes, that's Rev. Dr. Anne, to you. I am a learner and teller of stories, looking at how we share faith and relationships. Any views I express here are not necessarily United Methodist views: they are mine.
