My guest and partner for today is the Rev. Tim Hughes. Tim is the Associate Pastor at Brown Memorial Park Avenue Presbyterian Church in Baltimore City. After graduating from Davidson College, Tim spent a year in an urban ministry immersion program in West Philadelphia that he considers the second half of his college education. He’s been hooked on city living ever since, with all its layers of culture and community and injustice and opportunity. He got a dual Masters in Divinity and Social Work in order to think more intentionally about how spiritual practices inform social justice. Baltimore City has proven to be an amazing and challenging place in which to put that education into practice. He lives there with his flat coat retriever Zoe.
