An Easter Trifecta: Jesus, Bach, and Dolly
, April 20, 2017
Happy Easter! It is unfortunate that the music of Easter has never caught on in society like the music of Christmas. Walk into any shopping mall and it’s doubtful you’ll hear orchestral arrangements of Welcome, happy morning or Hail thee, festival day blaring through the speakers. Similarly, nobody is clamoring for Beyoncé to record an Easter album with the hope that she’ll include He is risen!
What's Your Part in the Story?

Surprising no one, I’ve been a huge Lady Gaga fan since she burst onto the national scene in 2008. I’ve long admired her for the way she infuses what might otherwise appear to be meaningless pop/dance music with a deep commitment to art and meaning.
Christ Church as Midwife
, April 5, 2017
When my call to the priesthood first came in, it was born with a twin, to be a writer. I paid a lot of attention to the priest part for the first seven years and not much time developing myself as a writer. When I was granted a sabbatical in 2015, I began a creative writing program through Seattle Pacific University. It is the only low-residency writing program in the country that is also explicitly Christian. It attracts the most incredible people I have ever met. All of us so different, from all walks of life, but we all share two things: a love for God and a need to make Art through writing.
