Hi, I’m Wandering Clarkson.


Welcome to my blog! I have to admit that this is an intimidating project for a guy like me: I’m a bit of a luddite; my greatest inspiration and namesake is a 19th century Bishop; and (perhaps most importantly), I don’t have any hands! Still, I’m going to try my best to keep you updated on my travels and thoughts for as long as you have the patience to keep reading.

I like to travel. I love it, really. That shouldn’t be too much of a surprise, as my friend Robert Harper Clarkson was known to put quite a few miles on his wagon wheels while visiting his flock in eastern Nebraska. In time, the Diocese of Nebraska grew to include the whole state–all 77,000 square miles of it–and future bishops, intrepid priests, missionaries, and lay people joined the wandering spirit for the sake of the gospel, traversing these hard and beautiful Nebraska miles to bring fellowship, faith, and the sacraments of the Church to towns and villages that were often far removed from one another.

Here, you’ll find photographs and stories from my many journeys. You’ll also find historical tidbits, tall tales, and inspiring reports about how Episcopalians in Nebraska are serving Jesus in their communities. Please keep checking back often, and add a comment if you have an idea for where I should wander next!
