One Hundred or So Reflections from the Pastor's Desk Taken from Sixty Years of Ministry in Minnesota and Pennsylvania

The author retired on June 11, 2017, on the sixtieth anniversary of his ordination to the Presbyterian ministry in the First Presbyterian Church in Germantown, Philadelphia. Over the course of some forty years, serving congregations in Minnesota and Pennsylvania, each month he contributed an editorial for the monthly congregation’s newsletter. This book contains what he considers to be the best hundred or so of those writings.Within these pages, you will find reflections on history; the traditional “hatch, match, and dispatch” columns; some humor (“The Twelve Days of a Lenape Valley Christmas”); some spiritual insights into temporary personal setbacks (auto breakdown, open-heart surgery); as well as challenges to better investments of time, talents, and treasure; and, undergirding it all, inspiration for a deeper walk with Christ.May these Spirit-inspired very human words draw you closer to fellowship with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

--Rev. Daniel W. Reid
