Anglican Curate goes to Prison!!

Sooooooo....Fr. Tim, where have you been keeping yourself?

Good question!  I know it's been quite a while since my last posting but since some ideas have been swirling around in my brain lately and looking for an outlet, I thought I'd get my theological butt in gear and start writing again.

There have been some fairly significant changes in my life since I last wrote.  In December, after almost 2 long years of unemployment (in the secular realm.  I still worked like a dog for that taskmaster Fr. Terry.  hehehehe) a friend of mine let me know about a Chaplain's position that was opening up at the Prison where he worked in Kentucky.  He thought it might be a good fit for me so I interviewed.  And low and behold...THEY HIRED ME!

January saw me moving down to Eastern Kentucky ahead of my family to set up house and begin my training.  My family followed a week later and Voila! here we are.  I'm loving the work of a Prison Chaplain.  It's challenging but it also allows me to explore the Grace of God in new and exciting ways.  The family is settling in well and we are off again on a new journey. 

So...Welcome to the all new Echos of My Mind (theological reflections of an Anglican CHAPLAIN)
