I started my work as Dean of Trinity Cathedral eleven years ago having arrived on the Eastern Shore via time spent in Massachusetts, Colorado, Canada, Tennessee, and Texas. I am a cradle Episcopalian having been baptized, confirmed, married, and ordained in this part of God’s Church. I have built my life and priestly ministry on the archetype of the Wounded Healer whereby the source of one’s healing power is derived from one’s own wounds. It is a way in which weakness becomes the vessel of great power. The 12-Step programs are the most obvious example of this way of transformation. I have continued to build on the foundation of previous clergy who sought to make our worship space safe for all people, all feelings, all emotions—even the darker negative ones—knowing the truth sets us free.
I enjoy golf, the beach, a good cup of coffee in the morning, poetry by Rumi, laying in a hammock, and daily meditation.
