Tonight's guest is Rev. Mark Townsend. Author of "Jesus Through Pagan Eyes, Bridging Neopagan Perspectives with a Progressive Vision of Christ" ."He has been a Priest of the Open Episcopal Church since June 2011. His Parish of St. Francis and Mother Earth OEC, situated within the Midlands Diocese, has no geographical boundaries.

As an Open Episcopal Priest (OEC) and member of the Progressive Christian Alliance (PCA), Mark is able to express his open vision of Christian Priesthood in a fully sacramental way. Among the services offered is an Open Table (Holy Communion for anyone who desires), rites of passage from the traditional to the avant-garde, house blessings and ceremonies to mark special occasions such as anniversaries and civil ceremonies. Mark is a professional Celebrant and a member of the Association of Independent Celebrants (AOIC). 

One of the greatest blessings of the last few years is Mark’s discovery of the earth based path of Druidry, which he sees as totally compatible with Christianity. Most modern Druids see their path not so much as a religion but more as a philosophy, which means that there are many who follow the Druid ways and yet remain Christian, Jewish, Buddhist or even Atheist.
