A Report on El Paso

Dear friends, Yesterday we marched. It will take me a long time to process the experience, and to fully determine what it meant for me to be part of this action on our southern border. And I look forward to ongoing conversations about what the need to take such actions (i.e., the need to protest […]


Sing in the Choir

How Can I keep from singing? It’s Wednesday 6:55 P.M. and whether rain or shine, they start arriving… the faithful ones who make up our Warren Wilson Presbyterian Church choir.  Every week this group of dedicated people who love music and enjoy each other come to the chapel to sing together and prepare music they […]


Scotland: One Last Look

I’ve got to be honest: Scotland swept me off my feet. I’d been only once before, years ago.  But it was a brief trip, limited mostly to a basketball gym in Glasgow, and it did not leave much of a mark. That was not the case this time.  I had two weeks full weeks there, […]

Cookies & Carols

Cookies & Carols  Last night our fellowship hall was again filled with good food — in this case, cookies! — and with a diverse group of church folks and college folks and other folks, as we all gathered together to sing the beautiful carols of this Christmas season.  Cookies & Carols is one of the […]


Advent – Voice of Peace

Peace Written by Bill Heck Come Lord Jesus, Prince of Peace.  Hear our pleas. Do not forget us. Remind us to laugh more often and complain far less. Excise from our vocabulary the pronoun “I” and replace it with “WE”. Reveal to us something each day for which we can be grateful. Inspire us to […]
