Ellen Clark-King is currently the Archdeacon of Burrard and Priest Associate at Christ Church Cathedral in the Diocese of New Westminster, Vancouver, Canada. She is the author of Theology by Heart: Women, the Church and God (Epworth, 2004) and has a PhD in Feminist Theology/Spirituality.
Ellen intends to use her time at Vaughan Park working on a new book, provisionally entitled Hope for Your Fear: A Spiritual Journey into Peace. This will explore the inter-relationship between anxiety and spirituality, both in the lives of individuals and also within congregations. She will look at how, especially in the light of the current ecological crisis, we can live into the biblical calling of ‘do not be afraid.’
Ellen also hopes to find space for her own refreshment and renewal while at Vaughan Park, including making time for a personal retreat. She is delighted to have this opportunity to get to know a beautiful part of the world and to encounter another branch of the Anglican Communion.
