Welcome to my Crazy Uncle blog. I’m Neill Morgan, a reader, a writer, and a Presbyterian minister. I’m a husband, a father of four daughters, a grandfather of twin granddaughters. We have twin grandsons on the way. This blog, and the upcoming book of the same title, reflect my interest in the darkest corners of the biblical text and family systems theory. Reading Rabbi Edwin H. Friedman’s book, Generation to Generation: Family Systems in Church and Synagogue, stripped scales from my eyes. While it first changed the way I look at human behavior, families, churches, and the challenge of leadership, it also changed the way I read Scripture. Herein is my mash-up of family of origin work (especially Bowen and Friedman) with some of the craziest uncles on our faith-family tree, biblical writers, translators, and editors. I hope you enjoy it and join the conversation.
