Hi. My name is Roger, sometimes known as “Buttsy.” I am a retired Episcopal (Anglican) priest, hence the title of my blog “A View from an Open Rectory Window.” I live at Homewood at Plum Creek,  a retirement community in Hanover, Pennsylvania. I have served diverse rural, suburban and urban parishes of various sizes. Additionally, I have been a chaplain to both police and fire departments and for almost ten years was Director of Pastoral Care in a major hospital in a large American city. My personality is optimistic, my theology is progressive, my politics are liberal, my outlook is universalist, and my race is human. I enjoy all kinds of music, except boring music and I visit the cinema frequently. I could be described as someone who is too old to begin a new career and too young to write his memoirs. Barring any unforeseen problems, I intend to publish my posts every Thursday. Welcome to my blog. Enjoy reading and comment if you are so inclined.

  1. Hello- I wanted to ask you about using one of your photos (14th street bridge) for a proposal my company is working on. I would need a high resolution version and will pay if needed. thanks


    • Hi Casey,
      I do not own the rights to any of the pictures I use. They all come from various sites on the Internet, including the one I used of the 14th Street Bridge. As far as I am concerned, go ahead and use it. I do not know what the resolution of the photograph is.


  2. Roger…I am a friend of Lois Revi, and she often forwarded your posts. I decided to subscribe to them. Thank you for restoring my faith, literally. I too, am a progressive Christian, and was deeply desturbed by what was happening to the power of the right. It was becoming very powerful. Thank you so much for your posts and your inspiration. And please, please keep writing.
