Bios for Presenters for CCP3

Here are the biographies of our presenters for Creating a Culture of Peace for April 18-20. We are thrilled to welcome Ted and Christy Gordon of Gaithersburg, MD. There are only a few places left for this conference and the one, April 4-6. So register quickly!

Ted is an electrical engineer at the Consumer Product Safety Commission and a seminarian at Wesley Theological Seminary. He has studied issues of justice and peace for 30 years. Over the last several years he has been trying to combine contemplation and public witness—most recently at Los Alamos in New Mexico, the Pentagon, and the School of Americas at Fort Benning, Georgia. Ted earned the CCP-trainer certificate April 2007, and he edits and ghostwrites for Father John Dear. He and Christy live with their two sons in Gaithersburg, Maryland, just outside Washington, D.C.

Christy, a psychotherapist, has her own practice in Gaithersburg and serves the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America as a teacher of conflict resolution and as a counselor. For several years she was a member of Church of the Saviour’s Wellspring Conference Center, helping guide seekers on the spiritual journey. Later as a member of the Dayspring Silent Retreat Center, she led day-long retreats. A CCP trainer, Christy led a nine-week nonviolence seminar this past autumn. She and Ted have been married 27 years, and their getaway weekends have lately been at large gatherings protesting torture and war.
