Our final Tippy McMichael speaker for the spring is Bishop Steven Charleston, who will visit St. Paul’s on April 22 and April 23. On April 22, following a reception beginning at 6 p.m., Bishop Charleston will speak at 7 p.m. on “Finding a Sanctuary for the Spirit.” At the 10 a.m. forum on April 23, he will take “Faith is a Fear-Free Zone” as his topic. Bishop Charleston is widely recognized as a leading proponent for justice issues and for spiritual renewal in the church in both the United States and Canada. He has been called “one of the best preachers in the Episcopal Church,” leading worship services ranging from a revival style service in Texas to Lenten Services at Harvard University. A citizen of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, Bishop Charleston was born and raised in that state in a family that has had a long history of service in the Christian Native American community. Both his grandfather and great-grandfather were ordained ministers of the Presbyterian Church, serving among the Choctaw People in rural Oklahoma. His vocation in the church has been extensive and varied. He was the national staff officer for Native American ministries in the Episcopal Church; the Director of the Dakota Leadership Program; professor at Luther-Northwestern Seminary in Saint Paul, Minnesota; the Bishop of Alaska; chaplain of Trinity College in Hartford; Assistant Bishop of Connecticut; and most recently, the President and Dean of the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
