I guess I wasn’t back after all.
It’s been a month since I last posted… a month during which some part of my subconscious was holding its breath, waiting and wondering what would become of much of my past year’s work.
On May 11, 2012, along with twelve [...]
I’m not knee-deep in discernment and assessment, seeking nominees to become the ninth Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Western Michigan! Nor am I working on documents to introduce them to the diocese!

It’s not Spring Break with children at home! Nor is [...]
When I last posted, I made a dangerous statement: “If all goes well, we start on Monday.”
Since then, two Mondays have passed. As you may have noticed, nary a word has been published here. There are two reasons: tendencies toward perfectionism and higher priorities.
My tendencies toward perfectionism make [...]
Just about a week ago, I took a quick peek at my blog stats and thought, “How could that be possible?” I was reacting to the swift and widespread (for me) sharing of the post You Choose Your Child’s Religion, which brought many more new readers to this [...]
It’s clear to me that I am blessed by the readers of this blog. There’s even a civil conversation about the meaning of religious practice happening in the comments!
The last post asked for your thoughts. The civil conversation about religious practice accidentally started in the [...]

By the end of the day Friday, this blog [...]
I started blogging just about a year ago. I had no idea what I was doing. I was so shy about the fact that I had started a blog that I told no one, not even my husband.
I used the URL www.plainsongfarm.com because I already owned it. I bought it in 2001, soon after [...]
I love blogging. I plan to get back to it after my kids are back in school… which is only a few weeks away. I won’t be posting frequently then, but I do plan to post regularly.
This summer, however, it’s been a different story. Posts have been few and far between. Most of my [...]
When I pushed “publish” on my last post on May 16th, I never anticipated that it would be more than a month before another post was up. But my house was visited by a viral illness that took down my daughter first, my son next, and finally me. (My husband escaped unscathed.) Add that to [...]
My most recent post outlined some statistical trends in the Episcopal Church. It was a pleasure to hear from quite a few people in the comments as well as by private email. Although it was published only a couple of days ago, it has garnered almost 300 page [...]
Good to meet you! I’m Nurya…
Welcome!Here, a mother and priest chronicles her attempts at practicing resurrection. This sometimes involves small children and organizations known as "church." Other times it just means telling the truth. Occasionally chickens are mentioned. Click "About" for more...
