Let’s talk about theology, sacraments, ministry, and how this messy life works…

I recorded this episode alone, on the Oregon coast.  It feels vulnerable, which is ironic, since I say almost nothing.  It's about silence.  Sometimes silence is very loud.  My recording equipment actually indicates that this is the loudest episode I have ever recorded, with the wind and waves whipping around me...  go figure.  It's a weird episode.  I promise we'll be back to dialogue next week...  Thanks for listening.  Sometimes there are no good words.  L.
