We’re trying something new. Hello Hanover Saints! As many of you know, Pastor Andy is on sabbatical this summer. While he travels, studies, and expands his ministry, we thought this would be a great opportunity to revamp our weekly email. In our new format, the message will be much shorter or absent while we focus […]

In three short days this message will be posted on my door, inbox, and voicemail. When worship ends on Sunday the ten week sabbatical you have granted me will begin. Not since junior high school have I received such an extended break from my vocation. As I enter this period of research, reflection and renewal […]

I recently saw this post by a Facebook friend.  At first I laughed, rolled my eyes, and kept scrolling.  Before logging off, however, I returned to it several times, each time staring at it a little bit longer.  Since then I have not been able to get it out of my mind. This picture captures […]

The next time you need an inoculation to drive out darkness and doubt, or an injection of hope and light, find your way to an elementary school band, orchestra, and choral concert.  Really, you haven’t lived until you’ve had the experience.  In order for the vaccination to work, however, you must first prepare by suspending […]

Thank you God that I am not prone to cynicism. Likely lost in yesterday’s news about Amtrak’s devastation and DuPont’s salvation was the report of a disheartening day in Dover. Yesterday Senate Bill 40, the one that would repeal Delaware’s death penalty, which has already passed in the Senate, came before the House’s Judiciary Committee. […]

This week I’ve been feeling much like my namesake Jacob in that famous story about his divine wrestling match. All week I’ve had a knot in my stomach as each day’s news from Baltimore has unfolded. In anticipation of filling this space I’ve been wrestling mightily with what to say, knowing that not saying anything […]

A couple of hours ago I went to 1948.  A Hanover Saint invited a group of us into a time capsule to go with her to a lunch counter at a Woolworth’s in downtown Wilmington.  We went there with her to get a cup of soup and a sandwich.  We went in with her and […]

Have you every considered your many identities?  When I play the identity game it goes a little like this: I am son and father; husband and brother; neighbor and friend; cousin and nephew; servant and leader.  Each of these identities represent different relationships; each relationship puts me in a different role.  By the grace of […]
