The Rev. Kirk Alan Kubicek has had the privilege of writing for Sermons That Work almost from its inception. He is currently priest-in-charge of a Small But Mighty congregation in the Diocese of Maryland: Christ Church Forest Hill, Rock Spring Parish. Kubicek just celebrated the 40th anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood, and is still running or walking with weights every morning, writing poetry, and playing music. He is in his eleventh year playing drums and harmonica for On The Bus, a Grateful Dead tribute band in the DC/Baltimore Metro region. He just welcomed his third grandchild into the world and loves every minute of being Papi K. Life is good in Christ’s Beloved Community! All shall be well, all shall be well, all manner of thing shall be well.
