Early on in my time at this church, I attended a concert some other church members were at by a Quaker artist, Carrie Newcomer. She sang a song that has stayed with me since. It is about experiences of the Holy, with a refrain that says “I do not know its name.” For a person whose life is devoted to professional ministry, I don’t publically talk much about the ways that I experience God. Trying to articulate the reasons for that is probably material for another column or sermon. However, I know that , even for ministers, dinner party conversation can get a bit uncomfortable with others when we veer off the beaten path of weather and movies to deeper matters in our lives. One of the ways I experience God is in acts of human care.
