Episode 53: The Wild Wild West of Church Communications with Karin Hamilton

My guest today is our very own Karin Hamilton! That is right I am interviewing Karin! 

Karin Hamilton is the Canon for Communications and Media for the Episcopal Church in Connecticut. Karin has worked for the ECCT for 25 years. Before coming to ECCT, Karin worked for 8+ years at a local parish. Karin has an MS in Journalism, and her background is in sociology, which provides her with a well-rounded view to her work in communications. Karin is also an avid runner and lover of the Wild Wild West — mainly Utah. Her Friday afternoons are spent tending to horses at High Hopes Therapeutic Riding center in her home of Old Lyme. ​

Karin has a unique and progressive approach to diocesan communication and the church at large. For example, her dream of hosting a diocesan podcast focused on the ministry and work of every-day Episcopalians is what launched this very podcast. Karin has also been the editor of the annual print magazine CRUX, which showcases the various corners of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut focused on a central theme that develops throughout the process. ​

Karin retired at the end of June, and by the time this podcast airs she will have already been retired for a week! The Episcopal Church in Connecticut and I truly honor and respect and thank you for the work you have done, Karin. 

Welcome Karin!
