I'm Scott Gunn, an Episcopal priest. In my ministry, I serve as the Executive Director of Forward Movement in Cincinnati, OH. Our mission is to inspire disciples and empower evangelists, which is something I'm always glad to go on about. You can buy books I've written. I am a Deputy to General Convention, serving on behalf of the Diocese of Southern Ohio. In 2012 and 2009, I served in this capacity from the Diocese of Rhode Island. I'm also on the board of the Anglican Theological Review, and I'm the treasurer of the Protestant Church-owned Publishers Association. When I'm not on the road preaching or speaking, I spend Sundays at Christ Church Cathedral, Cincinnati, where I'm an honorary canon. (Canon Gunn is an excellent example of the hilarity of ecclesiastical titles.)

Not only am I a church geek, but I am a bona fide technology geek. Prior to ordination, I worked in technology spheres, including the The Atlantic Monthly & Fast Company, the MIT Media Lab, and Education Development Center. If asked, I'll tell you about my high-flying and quickly-crashing experience at a dot-com.

Oh, yes, the final obligatory bits. I'm married, and we have one dog in our household. You can follow our dog, George, on Twitter (@georgetdog). Yes, he's named after George Herbert. I enjoy music, reading, photography, and travel.

The Rev. Canon Scott Gunn (TEC)


In the name of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.

A man shivered on a cold Chicago street. He had lost his faith. Someone, a stranger, handed him a little green book on that frigid winter day. The book was a tiny New Testament. Wrapped in his worry, the man turned to an index, and he found a scripture verse to turn to for "anxiety." He read from the sixth chapter of Matthew, part of the Sermon on the Mount, " not worry about your life ... Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?"
