For Graduates in all walks of life

This blog is about weaving together texts to illumine our experience and discover a little light to guide our steps together. Few preachers do this as well as my friend, Carla Pratt Keyes. Week in and week out, she preaches to the faithful at Ginter Park Presbyterian Church in Richmond, and I was fortunate enough to worship there in seminary. Now, you, too, can keep up with her via her blog, Light and Leaven. In particular, I commend this beautiful commencement address she gave at her alma mater, William and Mary. Happy reading!


About Andrew Taylor-Troutman

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.

    Hello there! This post couldnít be written any better! Looking through this post reminds me of my previous roommate! He constantly kept preaching about this. I will forward this article to him. Fairly certain he’ll have a great read. Many thanks for sharing!

    Thank you for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research about this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I’m very glad to see such magnificent info being shared freely out there.
