Next Sunday

A Service of Poetry

Scudder Parker

We are building the service around several of Scudder’s poems, with Scudder reading his poems and inviting discussion after each one. He will introduce each poem with a few thoughts about the spiritual questions or challenges reflected in the poem.

Scudder Parker grew up on a family farm in North Danville Vt. He has been a Protestant minister (20 years), a state senator, a utility regulator, a candidate for Governor, a consultant on energy efficiency and renewable energy. At 74 Scudder is settling into his new and ongoing work as a poet. He is a passionate gardener and a proud grandfather of four. He and his wife, Susan Sussman, live in Middlesex Vermont..
