Incarnation – When God Is Revealed in Us

On Sunday we heard a gracious sermon from the Rev. Jonathan Hanneman in which he shared the wonderful story of how he and his wife, Shannon Walker, found their way to St. Dunstan’s, the Episcopal Church, and eventually, to the priesthood. We celebrated his ordination and call to serve as a curate at the Church…

The Rev. Jonathan Hanneman Preaching

Nine years ago, shortly after I was called to St. Dunstan’s Church, a young couple visited our worship. Jonathan Hanneman and Shannon Walker later told me that they intended to worship at a different church that morning but discovered that it was closed that day, so they came to St. Dunstan’s instead.

Last Sunday we heard a wonderful story from Mother Carola about young men dancing joyfully to the altar carrying baskets of offerings. I love that image because it captures the experience of so many of us as we support our church. I was giving a parishioner a ride home after the service and he told…

This Month in the Organ Shop: November

As you know, Jonathan and his crew at Ortloff Organ Company have been working on our organ diligently for eight months, methodically building the many diverse components for our organ: the windchests, slider chests, rackboards, toe boards, and wind trunks, to name only a few, making sure each component is flat, sturdy, and sealed. They’ve…
