About

announcements Trinity 042113I’m a retired religion professor who spent his career at the College of Arts and Sciences, Baker University, in Baldwin City, Kansas. I grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, where my dad taught at Emory University and my mom was a housewife. I have a younger brother, John, who continues to live in Atlanta. My education was at the Westminster Schools, the University of North Carolina, and Emory University.
I came to Kansas in 1977 to take the job of teaching religion to undergraduates and ended up working there for 35 years. I taught courses like Introduction to the New Testament, World Religions, Christian Thought, Christian History, the Holocaust, and Christian Ethics. I took pleasure in teaching introductory classes and general education classes. Baker gave me the experience of a school that has a good sense of community, and Baldwin City gave me the experience of living in a small Midwestern town — these were both experiences that I enjoyed.
Significant points of my life have been the birth and growth of my daughter Joanna; getting and surviving cancer; marriage to Jennifer (ending in divorce); and marriage to Kay.
I was baptized shortly after birth, and my parents joined the Episcopal Church during my childhood. An unexpected turn of events during my senior year of college led to my enrolling in the Candler School of Theology (Emory University) and later getting ordained as a priest. I now serve in the Episcopal Diocese of Kansas.
In retirement I enjoy teaching for the Bishop Kemper School for Ministry, filling in on Sundays at Episcopal Churches (see photograph), and hanging out with friends.
