The Seminarian's Corner

The Seminarian’s Corner

October 24, 2018

Sisters and Brothers,

 I want to take a minute and introduce myself! My name is Jill Williams and I am a seminarian. This means that I am in the 4th year of a 5 year process to become an Episcopal priest. I attend Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria, Virginia, where I am studying to earn a Masters of Divinity, and will be the seminarian intern here at Memorial until I am ordained in 2020. I hope to use this space each month to tell you a little about what I’m doing or what I’m learning, or just to share some thoughts with you. I hope to hear back from you with any of your thoughts or reactions at And if I haven’t met you yet, please introduce yourself! I really want to get to know everyone.

This Sunday will be the first time I am preaching at Memorial. Preaching is serious business. I’ll be talking about scripture and I’ll be talking about our lives. And I want you all to know that I take the responsibility seriously and promise to always do my part to pray fiercely and study with great discipline about what is to be preached, and reflect with love and integrity what I hear God saying to us all. I hope to see you all Sunday!
