Matt Boswell, Pastor of Camas Friends

Greetings! I am grateful and honored to have joined Camas Friends Church in October 2015. I, along with my wife Joann and daughters Clara and Renee, recently moved back from Berkeley, CA, where I am a currently a PhD candidate in Christian Spirituality at the Graduate Theological Union. My work focuses especially on spiritual formation, love, and virtue ethics. We now live on Lookout Ridge in Washougal, just over a mile from Camas Friends Church.

I am excited to be pastoring at CFC. This Quaker meeting (congregation) is a wonderful expression of Christian spirituality that values justice, peace, mysticism, diversity, tradition, mystery, listening, inclusion, community, and participation. CFC practices an enticing, caring, and hopeful spirituality which I am excited to participate in, nurture, and magnify.

I also get excited about my family and friends, exercise and cooking and eating, learning new things, getting better at caring for others and helping them grow and become, binge-watching Netflix shows with Joann, following Seattle Mariners baseball (definitely not with Joann), McMenamins ales and tots, buying new books, being in nature, and waking up early but hitting the snooze button once (sometimes twice).
