    Recap of Ministry for 2021

    These are some highlights of my ministry activity for 2021 – feel free to ask questions in the comments.

    I currently serve as the Rector of Saint Paul’s Anglican Church and Headmaster of Canterbury School and below are some of my extra oppurtunies in addition to my typical duties leading daily chapel and weekly services.

    January

    Visited Christ the King (REC) in Grover Beach, CA to preach and celebrate Holy Communion for Christmas II.

    Blessing the Church Doors for Epiphany, an old tradition that the Canterbury students love to participate in.

    Recorded a Lecture entitled “Monks and Monasticism in the Anglican Tradition” based on some work I’ve been doing at Cranmer Theological House.

    February

    Fr. James and I held St. Paul’s first off-site Ash Wednesday at “St. Arbucks” in a nearby shopping center which required more Spanish than I expected – “pues polvo eres, y al polvo volverás.”

    Had a virtual lunch with The Gospel Coalition (TGC) South Bay Area Pastors Network. Praying together as we all pastor through COVIDtide.

    March

    Helped lead a mass in my hometown of West Sacramento at a Baptist Church (where my younger sister was Baptized!) It remains one of my goals to help establish an Anglican presence in the Sacramento Area.

    We hosted a Choral Evensong at Saint Paul’s Anglican Church – Los Altos with the Choristers from St. Andrew’s Academy and Canterbury Christian School.

    April

    My daughter Lucy was our all-star egg finder at our Church’s Easter egg hunt.

    I’m grateful for an all-star altar guild that loves our church inside and out!

    During my vacation following Easter, I took “The California Motorcyclist Safety Program Motorcyclist Training Course” and bought a motorcycle. Did you know the Anglican Priest John Wesley rode enough miles on horseback to circle the earth 10 times? I’ve now driven hundreds of miles on my new-to-me “steel horse” going back and forth to celebrate communion and our priestly functions at our other churches.

    We also had Jeff Williamson, High School Principal at The King’s Academy, and twenty of his students join us at Canterbury in April for chapel and some service projects. Always a delight to have Canterbury alumni return to visit campus.

    I also taught an Instructed Eucharist for our Canterbury students on the Feast of St. Anselm of Canterbury

    And celebrating St. Mark’s Day for Chris the King in Grover Beach

    July

    In July, I attended the Forward in Faith North America Conference and the Anglican Way Institute, where I also led a workshop entitled, “Narnian Apologetics.” I was also able to witness the ordination of my friend the Rev. Kent Bartels. (I’m the priest in khakis on the right side fo the huddle.)

    I also attended Choir Camp up at St. Andrew’s Lake Almanor where I was able to officially confirm that I’m not a very good chorister. We ended up leaving a day early due to emergency evacuations and the hotel where we stayed was partially burned by the Dixie fire.

    August

    In August, I led our weeklong teacher orientation and we sorted out our books and materials from Abeka, Memoria Press, and Singapore Math for the new academic year at Canterbury.

    Our 2021-2022 Canterbury Staff

    Canterbury Christian School is a private, classical Christian school and member of the Anglican School Association. It is located in Los Altos, California and serves students from Kindergarten to Fifth Grade.

    I also recorded a fun lecture on the history of the Anglican tradition in American Episcopalianism. Starting with Sir Francis Drake, this video is a survey of the significant Anglican leaders that helped forge America’s religious identity from the pre-colonial period through the start of the 20th century.

    September

    We also held our annual teacher commissioning service – every year we renew each teacher’s vows with the school.
