News: St. Arbuck’s Chapel | A Blog by Rev. Jeff Gannon

St. Arbuck’s Chapel is a weekly blog space where Pastor Jeff tells us what’s on his mind. The name pays tribute to a certain coffee chain where he finds refuge and inspiration. His current project is the “Wisdom from Wibaux,” an ongoing series exploring the native wisdom of his hometown. As he says, “The village raised all the children. I will be forever grateful for the lessons I learned from these authentic, hard working, hard-living folk from Eastern Montana. It may take us a year, give or take a few weeks, to get through all the stories, experiences, and people for whom I thank God regularly.”
