I’m the Rev. Madelyn Campbell. I am a middle-aged mother, grandmother, and, as of June 2013, a widow. I have nine children and nine grandchildren, and I definitely miss my husband. I started writing his blog when he couldn’t do it anymore, and now I’ve decided to continue with my own.
I was born and raised in and around New York City, and while I’ve lived in northern Virginia since 1987, I’m still a New Yorker. I’m a big fan of Doctor Who and Harry Potter, and I’m a Bible geek. In May, 2014, I was graduated with a Master of Divinity from Wesley Theological Seminary. I am an ordained minister and have preliminary fellowship with the Unitarian Universalist Association, although I was raised as a nice Jewish girl. I’m both/and – Jewish and Christian. My Judaism informs my Christianity, but not the other way around.
I like to write, and I have opinions on…most things. My favorite number is Phi, but I don’t think I’ll ever wax poetic about a graphing calculator. That was my husband’s bailiwick.
