I’m very pleased to announce that Julia Stroud will be our next Community Coordinator at St. Lydia’s — and I am so, so, happy that she has accepted this position! Julia is highly qualified for the job: she’s a strong administrator, has a creative approach to communications, and holds and Mdiv from Union Theological Seminary. In addition to all this relevant experience, I am struck by Julia’s warmth and groundedness, and her desire to serve our community and know and love each congregant.
I hope you’ll read more about Julia below, and join me in welcoming her. Her first services will be June 8 and 9.
After four years working in television and theater, Julia Macy Stroud found herself studying Systematic Theology at Union Theological Seminary, where she graduated with a Master of Divinity in 2014. She’s passionate about feminist theology, queer theory, and anything with a liberative bent; Julia is especially interested in what good theology can look like when it’s working in real faith communities.
Julia is also the Program Minister at All Saints’ Church in Park Slope, Brooklyn. There, she works with children and youth, preaches regularly on Sunday mornings, and manages their social media. She may also be found listening to comedy podcasts while circling Prospect Park on her bicycle.
A Twitter-Facebook-Instagram-Tumblr-etc enthusiast, Julia’s not ashamed to be found with her phone in her hand. Please feel free to friend and follow her across all platforms; she’s especially on the lookout for good pictures of us here at St. Lydia’s!
