This is my first attempt at keeping a regular blog. My hope is to start a weekly conversation with my parishioners, friends and family on what I have written each week. I love the art of preparing sermons, as well as delivering them. What is miss is the opportunity to talk about them. Not just in terms of good, bad or indifferent, but on a deeper level. I would love to enter into a communal discourse on how you responded to the sermon, what do you agree with, disagree with and how were you challenged. To this end I begin this blog humbly referred to as frcraig1.
