This little collection of occasional pieces is offered as a set of discussion openers ('ice-breakers') for those who are preparing for ministry in the Northeast. The intended audience for this selection of provocations would begin with first and second year seminarians. Candidates for ministry and those considering ministry later in life might find some comfort here, too. In addition, one might hope that those who have weathered a few winters in the pulpit could find some catalytic inspiration here.
