New Title for Blog

Dear Reader,

You might have noticed — or not —  that when you typed in “irrevspeckay” to come to my blog, and you hit the return key — or when you clicked on the link delivered to your inbox —  that the wonders of technology changed what you wrote to

Same blog, new title.  Found at both URLs.

The change in title reflects a developmental shift for me (and, I suppose, the blog) as I come into what I hope to be the final year of my ministerial formation.  I can affirm that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Towards that end, I reviewed the “About” page and changed it to reflect the clarity I have gained about my ministry:

The heart of my theology and ministry can be summed up in two wide concepts: AWAKE and WITNESS.  

AWAKE: to grow our spiritual capacities in this world, we are asked over and over again to be awake; to turn towards, rather than away from, heartache,  suffering, oppression and injustice.  We are called to open our eyes with curiosity, our hearts with compassion, and our conscience on the side of those who have been marginalized. 

WITNESS: ours is not to passively watch, but to actively witness.   This is to engage, not to observe from a comfortable distance.  This is to live into our place in the interdependent web of all existence and our tasks reflecting the participatory nature of the Universe.
