The first time

59788482_10156994797076063_8186161344953712640_nOn June 29, 1980, the Presbytery of Shenango ordained me. In the approximately 38 years, 10 months, and 10 days since, I have never worn a clerical collar. Until today.

I wore a collar as I participated in the New Sanctuary Coalition‘s Life Bond Fund program. I went to the Department of Homeland Security’s office to post bond for an immigrant in detention. It was an honor.

I also recognize the privilege (white and male) that I carry and that has allowed (and continues to allow) me to appear in hospitals, nursing homes, jails, prisons, halls of power, street demonstrations, church gatherings, and other places, wearing pretty much what I choose, and say that I am a minister and be recognized as such. I am working for a world in which everyone receives the same treatment and welcome I do.
