For 25 years I was a theological librarian, first at the Burke Library at Union Theological Seminary in New York, then for two and a half years as library director at Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C. and then, from 2003 to May of 2015 at the General Theological Seminary in New York City as the Director of the Christoph Keller, Jr. Library. (or its Facebook Page). I was a member of the faculty of that institution until circumstances caused most of us to leave. You can follow the links on this page or read about it here.
I’m an Episcopal Priest and since November 2014 I have served on Sundays at Trinity Episcopal Church of Morrisania in the Bronx. It is a wonderful community of great faith and courage and I am happy to serve there.
This blog mostly has sermons that I’ve preached, as well as some posts that I have found important to share, sometimes written by others.
I am married to Paula Schaap and we live in Yonkers, where I spend as much time as possible gazing at the beautiful Hudson River and the Palisades on the other side.
