Andrew Twiddy works as an Anglican priest, teacher, writer, speaker, and musician. The contemplative and mystical traditions of the West have influenced him since his youth, and have set the tone for his leadership and versatile style in parish-based ministry in Central Vancouver Island for over 20 years. His degrees in Latin, Greek, and Hebrew led him into teaching and educational administration, and he has enjoyed animating biblical languages for seminary students and others. Andrew is an avid wordsmith and Scrabble player and represented Canada in the Commonwealth Scrabble tournament in Glasgow in 2014. He is a veteran supporter of the work of Richard Rohr and the programming of the Center for Action and Contemplation and has found their resources to be a vital tool for facilitating spiritual growth and transformation.
