Mark Longhurst is a pastor and writer pursuing a path of everyday, ordinary mysticism. He serves the First Congregational Church in Williamstown, MA and blogs regularly at Patheos.com. Mark began his spiritual journey in a conservative evangelical church, dipped toes in the charismatic/Pentecostal stream, jumped ship for social movement activism and the mainline/liberal church, and now finds his true home in the Christian and perennial mystical traditions. He earned a Masters of Divinity from Harvard Divinity School, followed Ana Forrest’s yoga teaching during formative years, and studied the mystics with Richard Rohr’s Living School for Action and Contemplation. He has two boys, Ian and Oliver, with his life-partner Faith, and is a near-fanatical fan of MASS MoCA.
