Rev. Ken Jones will be starting as our new minister on November 1, 2015. He has been a minister in the United Church of Canada since 1985. Over the past 30 years Ken has developed an appreciation for many ways of being spiritual. He has seen how First Nations people all over the world recognize the presence of the creator in all things. This knowledge has challenged Ken over the years to reach beyond himself to seek God in theater, clowning, stilt walking, community choirs, figure skating, dancing, in nature, in cities, on mountain tops and in quiet glades. Ken has been practicing meditation for most of his career but the face of it has changed greatly, from just sitting quietly to being surrounded and filled by the sounds of crystal bowls, chanting, Tai Chi, Yoga of sound and voice, to name a few. Ken began putting on clown face in the early 80’s for clown ministry. Over the years he clowned at day cares and kindergarten and put on his clown face to have fun clowning with the children. This allowed him to add to his portfolio the title of laughter leader. Ken’s path in life is to seek truth and find fun in whatever life brings.
