Manhattan Muir

Brooklyn Bridge
Roebling’s Bridge (Brooklyn NY)


In my head echo the Muir Woods

Ancient, silent, changing yes,

but at a pace no one living can see.

Creation, stately, profound, not to be moved.


Around me sounds the vast city

Ever new, abounding in cacophony,

shifting constantly, as often as stocks rise and fall,

a babel, imposing and imposed, never still.


Between the two . . .

Muir Woods (SanFrancisco, CA)


It is no simple easy

to build a bridge.

Ask Washington Roebling.




The City


A native of the North Shore of Boston, I currently live on Long Island, New York. I worked at Boston College as the Acting Director of The Church in the 21st Century Center until August, 2010 and served until November 2016 as Canon for Formation, and Dean of the George Mercer Jr. School of Theology of the Diocese of Long Island. I am now Rector at the Church of Saint Anselm of Canterbury in Shoreham, New York.
