You Know the Way: Through the Great Divide
You Know the Way is a fitting tribute to the memory of a great teacher who brought us comfort and joy when we were disturbed, but who was also fearless in disturbing us when he thought we were too comfortable. In this way, his homilies will continue to inspire us.

Steve always questioned himself and challenged himself to grow and become a better Christian and a better human being. His preaching was just a simple sharing of the questions he asked himself. He spoke as one human to other humans, friends and companions on the journey, all of us struggling to grow and become our better selves.
The times in the last 35 years that I spent with Steve in the deaconate, he impressed me very much. But mostly the non-deaconate instances of being witness to the truth and violations of the Gospel by those in society that should uphold it are what I remember and cherish. This is the real deaconate, this spirit of God that I look for and Steve had it.
