A Ministry of Writing
The Rev. Jim Friedrich, husband to our rector and assisting priest at St. Barnabas, has practiced many forms of ministry in his 50 years of priesthood: filmmaker, liturgical creative, teacher, retreat leader, campus minister, and musician. He is also a writer, and his blog, The Religious Imagineer, forms a significant part of his current ministry. While always imbued with an Anglican perspective, Jim’s eloquent posts provide in-depth reflections on theology, spirituality, the natural world, literature, the arts, cinema, contemporary culture and public life. Since its inception with dispatches from Jim’s 500-mile pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago in 2014, The Religious Imagineer has received over 90,000 views, and some of its posts have been picked up by Christian Century magazine and the Episcopal Cafewebsite.
