Rev. Dr. Matt Meinke | Presbyterian minister @MaumeeVP | progressive | advocate for justice | Morning Reflections guy | Democrat | adjunct professor | leadership consultant | OU Thunder Packer fan | blogger | foodie | scuba diver| causing trouble since the 70s
“Morning Reflections” started as a daily devotional based on the Scripture readings for the day. They have historically followed the readings of the Daily Office of Morning and Evening Prayer that many denominations follow, including the Presbyterian Church (USA). More recently, Morning Reflections has become a bullhorn for change, speaking challenging words to the church of tomorrow.
It is hard to believe, but I have been writing Morning Reflections for over 15 years now. As always Morning Reflections and this blog are my own, and do not necessarily reflect the views of my church, my presbytery, or my denomination, although I am a good Presbyterian and the argument could be made! All content is copyrighted.
I am currently the General Presbyter in Maumee Valley Presbytery, which covers NW Ohio and SE Michigan.
