"This is my prayer: that your love may overflow more and more with knowledge and full insight to help you to determine what is best." -- "St. Paul's" [deutero-Pauline] Epistle to the Philippians 1:9-10
I'm a young man in my mid-twenties, and a fairly new Episcopalian, baptised on Easter Even 2007. I'm the Clerk of the Vestry at my home parish, The Church of the Ascension, part of the Trinity Episcopal Shared Ministry. I'm also involved with Circle of Hope, a network of congregations and cells in the Philadelphia/South Jersey area operating under the aegis of the Brethren in Christ. They're crazy Protestants, but I love them anyway.
Theologically and liturgically, I'm a very liberal high church Anglo-Catholic. This is my blog.
