About

I’m James.  I’ve been a teacher and caretaker of young children, and I’d like to be a priest.  I live in Portland, Oregon with my husband and our cat. Right now I’m a Chaplain Resident at the VA Hospital and a Pastoral Associate at St. David of Wales on Harrison Hill.  I’m a candidate for Holy Orders from the Diocese of North Carolina.  I love slow cooking, long walks, and RuPaul’s Drag Race.

The sermons posted here are part of my formation in ministry.  The poems and songs are a byproduct of that process.  Taken together, they represent the most important things I can think to say anything about.  I hope you find some truth in them; and, if we’re especially graced, I hope they speed us each along the way into God’s kingdom of peace among us.
