This is a newly redesigned web site. I have had a web presence since 1987. This has mostly been for photographs but I have also included some of my writing. I am currently the volunteer webmaster for two not-for-profit organizations. You can view their sites by clicking the Web Sites tab above. You can learn more about me, by clicking the About tab above.

My Favorite Landscape Photos of 2014

Some of these are close to home and others as far away: California, New Orleans, Vermont, Hudson Valley and, of course, Kansas City. If you roll the cursor over the image, you will be able to click on the icon in the lower lefthand corner and go directly to the Picasa album. If you want to view the landscape photos from 2013, please click here.

Up in the Air 2014

Below is a slide show of photos that I have taken this year through windows on airplanes during my trips.  The new FAA rules allow me to use my cameras during takeoff and landing.  I enjoy seeing things from this new--for me--perspective.

Petition on Lay Preaching gains more than 1700 signatures.

For updates, click here to send an email to keep informed.

The new Bishop of Rochester has ended a 40 year tradition of lay preaching.  In accord with canon law, the previous Bishop exercised his pastoral judgement in a way that made it possible for us to hear the Word broken open by highly educated and experienced lay ministers--both women and men.  Such preaching has enriched the life of the People of God in the diocese.  We have started a petition urging Bishop Matano to reconsider and to respond to our need to hear those most like us express the ways in which God acts in their lives.
