This weekend I’m traveling back up to the lovely Barbara C. Harris Camp and Conference Center to do the music for a Pre-Confirmation Retreat hosted by the Episcopal Diocese of Massachussetts. Excited to see some good friends there and team up again with a really vibrant and exciting youth ministry!
The past few weeks have been insanely busy for me. It turns out that job-searching takes a lot of time. After combining that with my work at ECY, Green’s Farms Church, and as a full-time student at Yale, there hasn’t been a whole lot of time for writing.
Even though I haven’t done a whole lot here on the blog lately, I have been working on a couple of projects elsewhere on the web.
This morning the first of two articles on youth ministry I’ve been working on appears on Provoketive Magazine’s website. The second part is coming soon, stay tuned! And please share this far and wide, we’re hoping to drum up some exciting discussion about a very important topic for churches and ministries to intentionally engage in.
I’ve also been doing a bit of web-design for Green’s Farms Church around a special project Senior Minister Jeff Rider is engaged in called “Project Hospitality.” Check it out, connect with the project on Facebook, and watch for further updates.
Here on the blog I’m hoping to introduce a couple of new “regular features” in the coming weeks (as time permits).
First, beginning soon (though maybe not this weekend, since I’m on the road), I’ll start posting a short, weekly reflection on one of the lectionary texts for the week each Sunday.
Second, as time permits, I’ll be posting on Monday or Tuesday of each week an overview of some major news or political stories of the week that are catching my eye and why I think they are important.
Alongside these more regular “features” I’m working on several original posts that will start appearing on the blog soon!
As always, thanks for reading!
UPDATE: Due to a technical glitch, the Provoketive Magazine article on youth ministry will be appearing Monday morning.
