We are a young married couple on a long-term exploration of our vocation. In 2008, that journey took us to India. From 2009-2012, we sojourned at Nashotah House, an small Anglo-Catholic seminary in Wisconsin, where our lives revolved around prayer, study, and work, in the classical Benedictine rhythm. We are currently in transition, looking at continuing graduate work this fall. In the meantime, we are on a short-term assignment in Pakistan, which you can read about on our separate, private blog. Please contact us for access.
For information about us, our projects, past adventures, and the things we are interested in and involved in, use the links to the left. To read more about our life and vision now, use the links above. You can also skip directly to our blog.
As you feel called, we welcome contributions to our development and vision. Our community past, present, and future — people who are invested in us and in our mission — form a big part of the mechanism through which God supports and sustains us financially, as well as spiritually and emotionally.

- Help others get to know us and build connections around the world

Homily for the Nativity of St. John the Forerunner
edited 25 Jun 2012 02:41 ago
Sing, O barren one: Shout for joy you who have borne no children. Rejoice and exult, proclaim the greatness of the wonderworking God, who makes deserts run with flowing streams, and transforms wastelands into fertile valleys. For today, she who was called barren gives birth, and even in her old age she brings forth a son, who is the greatest of the prophets, full of the Spirit from his mother’s womb. Elizabeth bears John the Forerunner, and rejoicing with her, we keep the feast. The mouth of Zechariah is opened, and we open our mouths with him to bless the God of Israel, who has come to his people and set them free. We open our mouths to laud the King who has raised up for us a mighty salvation, according to his ancient and eternal promises.
Good Shepherd Sunday

Shine the light of your resurrection upon us, Good Lord, and reveal yourself to us in your risen glory. Open our eyes to see you, open our ears to hear your voice, open our hearts to know and love you, and draw us into your fold, that we may indeed be the people of your pasture, and the sheep of your hand.

Prepare ye the way of the Lord – Make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Behold, Zion, your King comes to you, humble, and riding on a donkey. Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
A Black Friday Street Sermon

At 0-Dark 30, before expectant crowds waiting in line to get into a big box store with a fabulous sale.
I select my place strategically, where I am well lit and can be well heard; with something behind me that I am not crept up upon.
As is my custom, I am wearing a simple black robe, and no shoes, and carrying only a Bible. I have no signs; I am the sign.
