“God laughs, and God plays,” a wise man has been known to say, and currently Regan spends her time coordinating US Godly Play Training and operations administration for the Godly Play Foundation and leading Godly Play sessions wherever she is invited to do so. Godly Play opened doors for Regan in both the other realm and this one, and in October 2013 she became a Postulant for the Episcopal Diocese of Oregon. Having started a Certificate in the Spiritual Guidance of Children at General Theological Seminary, Regan will pursue an M.Div. at the University of the South’s School of Theology in Fall 2014.
Regan grew up in a little Oregon town and attended Portland’s Jesuit High School. Ever the mountain girl, she went to the University of Colorado at Boulder for a BA in Psychology and then moved to New York City to fulfill her Marjorie Morningstar dream. Regan spent the last 12 years back in Oregon and was actively involved in the Godly Play and Listening Post programs at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral. Along with her brilliant husband Paul, her amazing daughters Cecilia (9) and Genevieve (3) and their three cats, Regan recently moved to beautiful Sewanee, TN where her husband was called to the School of Theology’s Beecken Center.

It's Mother's Day weekend and our show today features a reading of the infamous trip to Sewanee entitled "Wrong Way Howard." Susan and her mother spent several agonizing hours on the side of I-81 in southwestern Virginia waiting for her father and Scotty to find their way south instead of north. Join the Lady Father for this entertaining episode of Lady Father on Life.
This week's show is pre-recorded to allow our co-host to "Tiptoe through the tulips" at the Albany Tulip Festival. The Lady Father will be in the Armchair Studio so log in to chat with her. Sorry there are no live call-ins on this show but you can ask questions in the chat room or email questions to Susan ahead of time at email@example.com.
"Lady Father on Life" features the Rev. Susan Bowman, retired Episcopal Priest and author of a memoir entitled "Lady Father." She and JennyO, her co-host have a lively conversation about her book and any other questions that come from callers or people in the Chat Room. They laugh together at some of Lady Father's stories and there are some that touch much more than the funny bone.
Lady Father is the author of an inspirational memoir of her spiritual journey to ordained priesthood as a woman. Rev. Susan Bowman was one of the first women ordained as an Episcopal Priest in southeastern Virginia in the 1980's.
We explore portions of her book and how her experiences have influenced her beliefs and views on life. Enjoy her unique perspective on this crazy world! Your participation is strongly encouraged.
