Steve, as I have perused your website and the included materials I am kicking myself for not have made a deeper acquaintance with you during my years at Greensboro First Presbyterian. I thoroughly appreciate what you have done in your years of active parish ministry and what you are doing now in “retirement”. As you may or may not know, I am living in San Antonio, Texas, and following retirement I served in the administration of Austin Seminary as a V.P. for six years, and have also engaged in three Interims. At 79, I am currently serving as Interim Lead Pastor at First Presbyterian in Shreveport, LA. I look forward to staying in touch and receiving your excellent material.
Thanks for your comments,which unfortunately I didn’t pick up on until now. I’m afraid we were both too busy with our respective pastorates to make the connection we should have.
I hope you will look at my latest adventure of “building respect for clergy one story at a time,” with the first two volumes of Clergy Tales–Tails. These are short stories about various adventures of being a clergy. amzn.to/13VO446
We will be moving to St. Petersburg, FL in the fall to Westminster Shores. I agree let’s keep in touch.
This Chien-Di from NCP. We met in a conference you led last Oct. in TX.
After coming home, I bought ALL your books–really enjoy reading and wrestling with your points. I do appreciate that those give me room and opportunities to reflect upon myself and my ministry. I also remember your reminder–my family is also a church God asks me to minister faithfully. Thanks a lot! It of great help.
I’ve finished reading “Clergy: Tails -Tales”and “A Star & A Tear,” and enjoy listening to the two CDs too. Reading the second book indeed is more beneficial for me than attending Sexual Misconduct conference. I enjoy the way you putting sex and spirituality together in a comparative and deeper way–both productive and destructive. Thanks!
However, I find a typo in page 343, line 5 (from top). If my understanding is correct, you are talking about Rachel, instead of Amanda, aren’t you? I hope I am wrong.
Anyway, I really really enjoy reading this novel which may relate to my ministry and those of my colleagues. Thank you so much!

You are right about the typo. Thanks for pointing that out. I will add it to the changes I need to make to an updated version.
I am pleased to hear how you have both enjoyed and benefited from the books. Maybe you could get some colleagues together and talk about A Star and a Tear. In The Company of Pastors I suggested using both that book and Clergy Tales–Tails as part of a clergy support group.
I really enjoyed meeting you and hope that we will meet again soon. You might enjoy signing up for my blog, http://www.smccutchan.com . It doesn’t cost anything and I try to keep exploring the many ways that pastors can keep healthy as they engage in this noble calling of ministry.
Please keep my email, email@example.com available. If I can ever be of help, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Your friend in Christ, Steve
