Introduction Brought up a Missouri Synod Lutheran, I became an Episcopalian in my twenties, thought I was heading for ordination, but found by 1977 that I could not stay in that church. I became a Pentecostal, and after a quarter-century as a pastor, I returned to Anglicanism, drawn by a tradition I never fully abandoned and by the way it was being lived out at Trinity ACA, Rochester NH, where I have served as a layreader. I'm also a poet, self-publishing a number of chapbooks and reading publicly every time I get a chance, and am currently working on a novel. I married late (at 37) and have been alone since my wife died of cancer 15 years ago.
