Most every day I send out a daily meditation on scripture. It follows the Daily Office readings from the Episcopal Church but I print the text so you can read it without any experience with lectionaries - series of readings from the Bible. To receive them send a blank email to
Here is an example from last Friday:

I have become like a vulture in the wilderness, *
like an owl among the ruins.
I lie awake and groan; *
I am like a sparrow, lonely on a house-top. Psalm 102:6-7

Commas of crows on the branch over a frozen river
Vultures circling seeking food from the snow covered landscape
Owl sleeping rests from bearing her nightly message of death
Song of the sparrow pierces the winter air
Home, where is home?

Sermon for February 15, preached at Trinity Church, Concord MA. It is in mp3. The lessons for the day were Epiphany 6, Jeremiah 17:5-10, Psalm 1, Luke 6:17-26, focusing mainly on the blessings and woes of Luke's sermon on the plain. (Not that pilot and his sermon on the plane!).
