About: Vocation (vocare: to call)

For the past twenty-seven years, I’ve been a pastor in Presbyterian churches — in Pittsburgh for seven, in Columbus, Ohio for thirteen, and in Elmira, New York since January 2003.  It’s a calling that doesn’t always weigh easy on me, and yet I can’t conceive of  myself as as doing anything else.   As I have found my own particular way in this calling, I see myself as a worker in words and ideas for the building of the kingdom of God.  That’s why this adventure in blogging seems like a good place for me to apply some of my energies.

One thought on “About: Vocation (vocare: to call)

  1. I read your PRMI posting this morning and write to encourage you. I have been in similar situations. Today’s psalms include 69, which often seems to me as if Jeremiah could have written it. Or you — except for the imprecation. One can hardly exclude oneself from the words, “For they persecute one whom you struck; they increase the pain of him you wounded” — even when you know Jesus comes first to claim that description. May the Lord give you a blessed weekend even with all this turmoil.
    In Him,
