Another Voice, and Early in the Process

From one blog to another. Regular readers may know that each year I go looking in May and June for folks blogging about the CPE experience. I realized a bit too late that I hadn’t done that search this year. However, honored colleague George Handzo has pointed me to a new one. Christine Davies is a CPE Supervisory Education Student in New York, and she’s blogging about her experiences at Journeying Alongside ~ Chaplaincy & CPE in NYC.

I think it’s good every now and again to read, and to offer some support, for folks in the process. Readers of the blog abbaye have had the opportunity to get his perspective on that practice. Now we have the chance to follow with Christine. (And be sure to look at abbaye and at George’s blog, both linked in the sidebar under “Blogs Discussing Chaplaincy.”)

A Friendly Voice From a Different Location

My regular readers are aware, I hope, of my sidebar list of Blogs Discussing Chaplaincy. One of long standing is "The Hoosier Daddy - In Oz!" from Clair Hochstetler. Some years ago he moved from a chaplaincy position in Indiana to take a chaplaincy position in Australia (hence the name). Well, Clair has moved to a new blog. It's called Bringing Clair-ity To Life Down Under. I suppose that doesn't seem a new location: he's still in Australia. However, he's on a new server with a new address; and in the blogosphere that's as much a move as a geographic change. I encourage you to go over and take a look.

I haven't deleted the earlier site yet, because his earlier observations about chaplaincy are still relevant. So, you can have the benefit of both.

On Pride of Place; Well, On Pride and Place

I've been preaching a bit more at St. Mary Magdalene Episcopal Church lately because they're in transition. Here's my comment on knowing one's place, and the fundamental sin.
