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..
