lives in Barrington, RI and serves as the Associate Pastor of the Barrington Congregational Church (UCC). As the VP for Justice and Witness for the RI conference of the UCC (soon to be association!) he organizes community water/eco-justice vigils and popular education in partnership with community groups that work to end racism and environmental injustice. Brendan feels passionate about the idea of beloved community, histories of resistance, interfaith dialogue, and the divine feminine. He enjoys celebrating with others how the love and justice of Jesus can transform the world into the realm of God. His favorite parts of ministry are hosting community coffee hours on Thursday afternoons, mission/service trips that aspire toward practicing solidarity, and exploring contemplative and embodied prayer practices during “Mindful Mondays,” at the church. He likes to run, draw, make puppets, do yoga, sing traditional Irish music, and play the bodhran. He lives with his loving partner Daniel and his two beloved cats, Nettles and Nero.
