The Rev. Michael Merriman – Guest Presider 

Michael Merriman was raised in Throckmorton, Texas and holds degrees from the University of Texas and General Theological Seminary.  He was ordained to serve at St. Stephen's, Wichita Falls with responsibility for St. John's Burkburnett and Midwestern State University. While there, he was ordained priest in 1966 and he and Cherrie were married at St. Stephen’s in 1967.  He served in several parishes in the Diocese of Dallas including Garland, Grand Prairie and Granbury (which included Camp Crucis). Then he was called as Canon Precentor at Grace Cathedral San Francisco.  In 1997, he began a seven-year appointment in the Diocese of North Queensland, Anglican Church of Australia.  Michael retired in 2004 and assists at Transfiguration, Dallas, where he established a model catechesis program for Christian initiation as well as formation.  Throughout his ordained ministry, he has been an active leader in the Associated Parishes for Liturgy and Mission.  His Rite Light series of reflections for every Sunday of the three year Revised Common Lectionary is used throughout the church in bulletins, newsletters, emails, etc. to orient our time together in worship.
