"We also had the joyous news of being able to move one of the dear friends of my school's Episcopal community, an Orthodox monk to a new home near one of our churches, where he'll be able to celebrate Mass each week. He's a real…"
"Well, thank you for asking- though I must say its not entirely something I could post in this case, brief and extemporaneous this time. Wednesday mornings I've been doing short messages around the saints of the day in the Episcopal…"
"Nice... I'm trying to recruit some folks on facebook where most of my Crossing people are. Are you guys on there too?
Hope I can visit some day too. We've had Peter Rollins over here a few times from Northern…"

"Gotcha- hard to tell that from the internet sometimes.

"Good evening, Laura. I'm glad we will be friends. Your surname is most appropriate. So you have a tabby; any other cohabiters? My little kitty (well, he weighs in at 13 pounds but he is shorter than I am) is my…"
"Hi Dana. I share my sanctuary with a feline tabby named Maggie. I also have a ministry to the patients on the Alzheimers Unit of our local nursing home. I'm happy to meet you here and to offer a prayer for God's abundant…"
