Photography is my spiritual discipline. My first published photographs were taken to illustrate my work as a newspaper reporter and freelance writer, but later, as I followed a career path that led to ordained ministry in the Episcopal Church, my intent has shifted from showing what happened to exploring what matters. I’m especially interested in the way light can be a metaphor for presence, and in particular, the way it breaks in and illuminates–light, like grace, changes everything. The Delaware River has been a frequent subject of my photos, but because the light changes day by day and hour and hour, everyone is different. “First Light” was taken from the bridge in New Hope on a morning when fog obscured most of the river, leaving this tree and the house behind it seeming to float on their own in a blue world.
