Paul Daniels

My name is Paul Daniels, II. I am a native born North Carolinian who will be spending a year in Grahamstown, South Africa working at the Anglican Cathedral of Grahamstown. I moved to Boston, MA to live in intentional faith community with the Life Together Community to discern a call to the Episcopal Priesthood and dedicate myself to a year of social justice and serving an urban Episcopal parish in Lynn, MA. I am deeply interested in Christian Spirituality and the oneness of God and humanity. I believe in peace and mutuality, and that oneness with God becomes real when we learn to live peaceably with ourselves and each other.
