Welcome to Churchwork, and thanks for stopping by! I put together this page to help you find what most interests you.
The main focus of the blog is the renewal of the Episcopal Church and all Creation. To serve that end I mostly write about church data and strategy, Christian formation, and creation care with an emphasis on faith and food.
Here are some top posts that might interest you:
As we prepare for closing churches: Solving the climate crisis, one (closed?) church at a time
Finding the nascent Christian food movement: The Christian Food Movement has the most comprehensive guide available to faith-based food ministry in the Christian faith.
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.
In 2014 I blogged my way through the Pew Forum’s The Next America book, gathering Episcopal Church data along the way to compare and contrast with the wider population. You can find all those posts here.
In addition to blogging and serving a congregation, I’m working on a few projects behind the scenes. If you like what you see and want to know more, I encourage you to subscribe to the Churchwork Insiders list.
It’s a privilege to write for you. Thanks for being here.
