Letters from the Interim Rector


Dear People of Saint Timothy’s Parish:   During the eleven months I have been with you as your interim rector, I have used this space in our monthly “Tidings” newsletter for several purposes:  to inform, to teach, to encourage, to reflect, and (at least at times, I hope) to inspire.  You have heard from me […]

The Feast of the Epiphany

January 6, 2019   Dear People of Saint Timothy’s Church: Although the letter from the Rector is normally the lead article on the front page of our monthly newsletter, the letter from your new rector properly takes precedence this month, with this letter from me serving as a follow-up.  The wonderful news of the vestry’s […]

Looking to Christmas, 2018 . . .

Dear People of Saint Timothy’s Parish:   “My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my savior,” says Mary (Luke 1:46).   “Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, for he has visited and redeemed his people,” says Zechariah (Luke 1:68).   “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace […]

Dear People of Saint Timothy’s Parish: Sometimes, you get more than you bargained for in life. When I was the young associate rector of St. Michael’s Church here in Raleigh, back in the late 1970s, I once preached a stewardship sermon that found its way onto the desk of then Bishop Fraser–and which resulted in […]


Every so often, God drops in our laps an opportunity to do something that we might not otherwise have thought to do.  In my case, that happened when, within a couple of days of each other, I received two reminders, one that it was time for me to write this article for our church’s newsletter, […]

Change is Good.

Dear People of Saint Timothy’s Church: Having now been with you as your Interim Rector for six months—which is half way through the one year stipulated in my letter of agreement—I could not possibly be more pleased than I am with this parish and with all of you, this parish’s parishioners.  Your desire for increased […]

What does it mean for us in Saint Timothy’s parish to be “orthodox?”

What does it mean for us in Saint Timothy’s parish to be “orthodox?”  I was left wondering about that after our parish meeting with Canon Catherine Massey the other week.  At least one of the discussion tables during that meeting reported out using the word “orthodox” as one that they hoped would (continue to) describe […]

A Time of Change

Dear People of Saint Timothy’s Church: For this May edition of “Tidings,” I want to share with you some of my observations about our parish that have struck me most happily during my three months with you as your interim rector.   First and foremost, this is a parish of prayer and service.  The two, […]

Dear People of Saint Timothy’s Church: I write this to you on Holy Saturday, my Easter preparation now concluded, as I—along with all of you on this day, I should imagine—await the time tomorrow morning when we will celebrate new life through the Good News of Jesus on the his Resurrection day.  Easter always brings […]
