FUM is pleased to announce that Julie Rudd has agreed to be E-commerce and Web Assistant for Friends United Meeting and Friends United Press. Her responsibilities include managing dynamic content for our web site and social media; virtually stocking and maintaining our online book store; and helping us craft content that will gain and hold attention across the broad spectrum of ages, beliefs, and internet activity that comprise our diverse fellowship.
Julie has a bachelor’s degree in sociology from Houghton College and an M.Div from the Earlham School of Religion. She is a convinced Friend, and appreciates FUM for providing her with a spiritual home where all are equal in Christ and where the Gospel is understood as the path of peace. She is passionate about communicating the message of Friends to a world that so deeply needs Friends’ witness.
We will be sharing Julie with Wilmington Friends Meeting, in Wilmington, Ohio, where she is in her sixth year as pastoral minister. She also serves on the boards of the Clinton County Adult Day Center and Hope House: A Safe Place for Women and Children. She and her husband Craig live with one dog, three cats, and seven chickens in Wilmington, Ohio.
Julie began working for FUM in late November. She may be reached at julier(at)fum.org.
