The Rev. Thomas Eoyang still isn’t quite sure what made him return to church after years of indifference.
“I at first thought, ”˜Well that’s a silly idea,’ but you know when you’re trying to brainstorm you try to entertain every notion possible. Including all the silly ones,” said Eoyang about his decision to join a seminary in Cambridge, Mass., even before he had a desire to become a priest. He has been the rector at Grace Epiphany Episcopal Church on Gowen Avenue since 2004.
Eoyang ditched a successful career in medical publishing to join, and it proved to be a genuinely fun and uplifting experience. Eoyang found himself signing up for huge course loads and absorbing everything he could.
