Margaret W. Jones

In Rev. Margaret (Mimsy) Jones's ministry, she seeks above all a wise balance between activity and contemplation. Having been immersed in outreach ministry for years, both before and after her ordination to the Episcopal deaconate, she recently has concentrated on the interior life, and believes deeply in the value of silence and stillness. This emphasis has led to her role as a frequent leader of silent retreats in her hometown of Memphis, Tennessee.
