Editor, Interpreter Magazine

Interpreter magazine features the Rev. Ron Parker, recent interim pastor of Epworth United Methodist Church in Berkeley, in its November-December issue. Excerpts from an interview with Parker are part of a story on Christmas Eve services. Parker discusses how Epworth leaders and congregants seek not only to welcome but also to include guests so they are part of the service and "not just in the audience."
