And when your eyes freeze behind the grey window and the ghost of loss gets in to you,
When the canvas frays in the currach of thought and a stain of ocean blackens beneath you,
May the nourishment of the earth be yours,
~ John O’Donohue
I am a pastor and a preacher, a writer, a husband and a father. My professional and personal lives are deeply involved with story-telling: stories that are silly and poignant or profound and commonplace. Stories that are tear-jerkers and belly-shakers. Stories about my son, Sam, and the congregation I serve, New Dublin Presbyterian Church. Each in its own way, these personal narratives shed light on the great story that God is writing with humankind and all of creation.
