My New Blog!

Church of Christ Congregational
Stony Creek CT
Welcome to www.creekparson.com!  I am a progressive Congregational minister living and serving in southern coastal Connecticut.  Stony Creek is a village within the town of Branford -- hence the name "creek parson."

I'm a native of Missouri and have strong midwest roots, though I was also raised outside of Atlanta, GA.  Our family moved to Connecticut in the Fall of 2014 and have enjoyed immensely the terribly underrated New England hospitality we have received.  

The view from our church yard
This summer will be 16 years since my ordination and I've served three different churches as pastor for the last 15 years.  I've been blessed to have many wonderful mentors in ministry through the years, including professors, colleagues, and even family members.  More than a few parishioners have taught me a thing or three, as well.

Our sanctuary
Those who know me will remember I have played around with blogging over the years, but it never really took hold.  This blog will be my better effort :)  I look forward to sharing my reflections on life, culture, faith, theology, and even entertainment or sports; I eagerly anticipate your comments, too!  I'll include the occasional book, movie, or television review, as well as the occasional rant.  

Stay tuned to Thursday afternoons...
