Julia Fritts McWilliams "represents that postmodern eclectic spirit that isn’t afraid of drawing from different traditions and incorporating that into what she does," says the rector of the church where she works as a priest associate.
The Rev. Fritts McWilliams teaches seated meditation and Tai Chi at Good Samaritan Episcopal Church in Corvallis, Ore. She also is a licensed acupuncturist. No matter what she's doing, her next sermon is always at the back of her mind.
“People for all of their own very good reasons have shied away from church, but yet there’s this longing for the holy,” she says. “I offer different ways to develop spirit practice that doesn’t require any sort of indoctrination, party line, none of that.”
