Fifty Years After Stonewall
In Honor of Lisa, Michael, Alan, Brian, Diane, Beth, Kelly, Rose, Jenny, Patrick, Fred, Ed … and thousands more who have taught me and those around us, “Just Be the Church”

Scriptures: Genesis 3:1-13 | Galatians 3:23-29 | Mark 12:38-42
I have one word of job advice for my son, Andrew, who is present with us this one Sunday before we embark on a two-week excursion together.
Son: Always look for a job from a job. In other words: If at all possible, don’t leave a job without another opportunity in-hand.
Not that I have always followed my own advice. For in 1998, I tendered my resignation from my first pastorate … without a new pastorate in-hand.
For after serving the minimum of three years I had agreed to serve at my first congregational call in rural Oklahoma: I was done.
