Letters from the Interim Rector

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 […]

On Thanksgiving and Giving Thanks . . .

Dear People of Saint Timothy’s Church:   November is the month in which we, as a nation, observe Thanksgiving Day as an occasion to give thanks to God for the blessings we have received as his hands.  It is, of course, observed in a purely secular manner by some people, but for people of faith […]


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, […]

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, […]

Easter Blessings

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 […]

Hard work ahead

Dear People of St. Timothy’s Church: I very much “hit the ground running” when I arrived here two weeks ago to begin my year-long service as your interim rector:  my first parish gathering was the Shrove Tuesday pancake supper (so excellently put on by our parish men’s group), followed the next day by four Ash […]
