What is the Rector’s Digest?
The Rector’s Digest is my personal check-in, posted on Fridays. This allows me to share information that may not be as time-sensitive but that I hope you’ll find intriguing, and then you have the weekend to check it out if you’re so inclined. It may be something about one of the parts of our Barque of St. Bartholomew, something I’m reading, a question that’s nagging me, or maybe just a podcast I’m listening to. We’re calling it the Rector’s Digest because a digest is a compilation or summary of material or information. Whatever that information may be from week to week, I hope you’ll find something that catches your imagination!
