Welcome

I'm a Scottish sacred musician, interspiritual minister and singer songwriter now living in rural Vermont.  These songs & reflections are my soul's way of making sense of the beauty, vulnerability and endless richness of this human life. It's a gift and a pleasure to share them with you.

Sunday Nov 29th Nov - Lighting the candle of Hope

It’s a renewable resource for moving through life as it is, not as we wish it to be.” On this first Sunday in Advent lets explore more deeply how Hope becomes a spiritual practice.
