Who Made It?
My name is Callid Keefe-Perry, and other than this project I’m involved with a variety of things, mostly orbiting around the Arts and/or Theology. I act with an improvisational comedy troupe I co-founded, manage a theater built for affordable community productions, consult on the use of the Arts in public school classrooms, work as the national coordinator of the Transformative Language Arts Network, and study as a returning student at Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School. Before I began working towards the MDiv though, I spent a number of years doing independent research and publishing in the field of theology and theopoetics.
Denominationally, I am a member of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) and I worship at Rochester Monthly Meeting in Western New York. I travel in the Gospel Ministry within, and beyond, the Religious Society of Friends, often with my wife Kristina serving as Elder, and we have both served as faculty teaching Quakerism at the Pendle Hill Retreat Center for Friends. That project included producing the educational web series, “Jewels of Quakerism,” which is a free online-resource for people interested in learning more about the Religious Society of Friends.
