He currently serves as Bishop of the New England Synod of the Lutheran Church (ELCA) He and his wife, Lisa, share a home along the Rhode Island coast where they bicycle, garden and enjoy visits from their grandchildren.
Everyday Spirituality: Discover a Life of Hope, Peace and Meaning seeks to help people who have struggled with traditional practices of the spiritual life. Rather than prescribing another failed attempt at daily devotional readings, written prayers and moments of quiet meditation, Everyday Spirituality exposes the truth that much of what we already do in life is, in fact, spiritual.
Through a series of short chapters centered around an action such as breathing, walking, working, eating, the reader realizes that spirituality is not an assigned section of their day or week. It’s everything they do.
