Warning: If you're not a member of my denomination, The Reformed Church in America (RCA), this post might be a little less than exciting. However, the themes of grief on which it touches are broadly applicable and I think you'll find them valuable. If you choose to rea...

Dear readers, 

Thank you for hanging in there with me despite very minimal interaction from yours truly. I couldn't tell you the last time I was sick for a month straight and for that I am grateful.

My last blog on Ed took a lot out of me. That, combined with the blur that was September, is why you're just now receiving a new post.

In my previous post, I began addressing the things about my upcoming (date remains, unfortunately, tbd) bariatric surgery about which I'm most excited, as well as some things I fear. Today's topic hits both of those categories in equal measure.

When a person experiences the death of a significant person in his/her life, an evaluation of faith and belief inevitably follows. For that reason, as a grief counselor my first session with a client includes a spiritual assessment. Because I don't want anyone to be ca...

In my office of President within Holland Classis RCA, I have the privilege of presiding at many services of ordination. For readers who are unaware, the service of ordination is the worship service during which a seminary graduate transitions from student and candidate...

In yesterday's post (read it here), I wrote about my non-negotiable attendance of the Annual RCA Chaplain's Conference. What makes it central to my annual routine is what it does for my soul and I want to share a bit about that now.

First, there are often many tears she...
