Br. Greg Marshall, OFH says, "I am a member of St Peter-in-Chains RCC and Church of Our Saviour EC. I don’t how express where I am but a tweener’. I have been confirmed in both the ECUSA and RCC. I move back and forth between the two. There are things I wholehearted agree with, and things that make me cringe (in both). I do daily devotions, three times a day using Common Prayer a Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals. The EC that I attend runs a soup kitchen and food pantry. It has always been a blessing to volunteer there. I always carry a rosary in my pocket. I switch off wearing a Tau cross, St.Pio medal (my confirmation saint) and St Benedict medal. I have made a promise (vow) of simplicity. That includes wearing plain clothes from thrift stores, 2nd hand shops. I also am growing a beard. To some that may not be a big deal, but for me it is. I have always been arrogant about my appearance. I am 60 and looking to the future. I really would like dedicate my retirement years, as service to God. My faith walk is sincere and honest."
