Friends, I am pleased to tell you that I have been called to Bruton Parish Church in Williamsburg, Virginia, to be the associate rector for youth, children and families. I am filled with gratitude for all of your support and prayers during this very long time of transition and am very excited about this new adventure.

THE KITCHEN DOOR:
We've been thinking about moving for a very long time, and on Sunday (our 7th anniversary), we signed a new lease.
In all, it's a good trade, but it's important to me to remember that there are celebrations and losses living side by side.
For all of us in the midst of upheaval and transition, Lord have mercy.
Happy Birthday to Ralph at LITTLE BANG THEORY.
Happy Birthday to my Facebook friends, C. Eric, Edwin, John and Mort.

Dear Lord, thank you for Your creation and for our Blackie. Thank you for bringing her into our lives and the joy that she gave us. Thank you for the home, comfort and security we were able to share with Blackie. Now as we say goodbye help us to remember the joy and warmth we feel for her as we wipe away our tears. Earth to earth, dust to dust... In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen

My brother priest, the Rev. Canon Dennis Josiah, who passed into greater life early this morning (28th. September). He was an amazing priest. He was my predecessor, and was incredibly supportive of me as the second Rector of San Cristóbal. We developed a very supportive relationship. I also appreciated his amazing sense of humour. I will miss Dennis.
