Welcome to Churchwork, and thanks for stopping by! I put together this page to help you find what most interests you.
Probably the first thing for you to know is that this blog is no longer where I spend the majority of my writing time. Editing Grow Christians and the Christian Food Movement site take the time I used to spend here. Also, I blog once a month about what’s happening at Plainsong Farm.
But this blog isn’t dead yet. When it began, the main focus of the blog is the renewal of the Episcopal Church and all Creation. To serve that end I mostly wrote about church data and strategy, Christian formation, and creation care with an emphasis on faith and food. I’m still writing about all those things, but from the viewpoint of someone founding a food and faith ministry. (I occasionally post sermons, but only when I want to contribute to the public conversation on a particular Sunday.)
Here are some top posts from the past that might interest you:
As we prepare for closing churches: Solving the climate crisis, one (closed?) church at a time
Connecting faith formation and ecological sustainability, with inspiration from the Jewish tradition: Sustaining Life on Earth and in Church
Subsidiarity isn’t simple and here’s the data to prove it: diocesan endowments differ greatly, and so do diocesan budgets.
It’s a privilege to write for you. Thanks for being here.
