Katherine Murray and OliveQuaker Earthcare Witness is pleased to welcome Katherine Murray as our new Publications Coordinator. She comes to us with a wealth of writing, publishing, and fundraising experience and a deep appreciation for spiritual ecology. Katherine and Louis worked together to produce this issue of BeFriending Creation, helping to make this a smooth transition. Katherine has been writing and publishing both in print and online–with her help, we will be expanding our online outreach through our website, our Facebook page, and more. For example, one way you can help her spread the word about QEW is to share her posts with your Facebook network. We are fortunate to have found a new Publications Coordinator with her depth of experience and her enthusiasm.

Katherine’s spirituality is based on her deep connection to nature from an early age. She is a member of First Friends Meeting in Indianapolis and has experienced in a profound way many other religious traditions. She holds a Master of Divinity degree from Earlham School of Religion.

Many, many thanks to those who participated in the search for our Publications Coordinator. Roy Taylor clerked the Search committee, made up of Anne Mitchell, Carol Barta, Judy Lumb, eric joy, and myself. Our spirits were lifted with the number of well-qualified and interesting people who applied for the position, and we made connections with three very special people whom we interviewed. With the recommendation of the Search committee, the Continuing Council Committee approved hiring Katherine Murray in October.

I am pleased and excited that we have added Katherine to our staff.
