About the Book

These meditations take a verse from one of the lectionary texts not chosen for preaching for a given service and offer a devotional reflection on the verse, often using the context of the entire pericope as described in the lectionary. I try to make them worth the while of my readers, finding a fairly broad readership among the congregations I served through the years. The Cross on the cover was made by William Herbert Durst in his Florence workshop. Mr. Durst was the grandfather of Mary-Bess Halford-Staffel who calls it his “Trinity Cross”.

About the Author

I served as an ordained minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) from 1976 through 2007 when I retired. In the practice of my ministry, I began to place meditations, called For Your Quiet Meditation, in the weekly bulletins on Palm Sunday, April 14 1981. I have continued to write them ever since, using them as originally design whenever I was serving a congregation. At other times, I wrote them, and continue to write them, as exercises in devotional writing mainly because I find them satisfying to do. I now live in my retirement in the hills of the Northern Panhandle of West Virginia, with my wife of fifty-one years, two dogs and several cats.
