The Reverend June Johnson will speak to us at our Friday night banquet.
The Reverend June Johnson is a native Georgian, born in Albany and currently living on Tybee Island on the coast from Savannah. She graduated from University of Georgia with a degree in Music Education and from Candler School of Theology at Emory University with a Master of Divinity. Bishop Louttit ordained her as a priest in August, 2009. She is married to Kent Failing and they will celebrate their 32nd wedding anniversary in May.
June+ has served three churches in the Diocese of Georgia: St. John’s in Bainbridge (a lovely town with a terrific town square), Holy Nativity on St. Simons Island (a beach town with all the amenities plus HN has a beautiful Christus Rex in their prayer garden) and now serves All Saints on Tybee Island (her home church and a wonderfully annoying and quirky town). June+ says that these are the three best churches in the Diocese and is so blessed to have served in each.
Life on Tybee is hardly slow! In addition to her parish work, June+ serves as a Trainer for LWG, a member of RJGA (Racial Justice Georgia) and is currently the Chaplain for the Diocesan DOK. She also devotes time to the Tybee MLK Human Rights Organization and Forever Tybee (a group working for transparency in city government) and is newly appointed to the Ethics Commission for the City of Tybee. She is participating in a study from the Clinton Foundation for intervention in drug addiction, is active in the Tybee Island Ministers Association. This year Tybee is returning to its traditional Easter Sunrise Service on the Pier – Hallelujah!
With all these wonderful things to do, June+ feels her primary occupation is providing daily and lengthy belly rubs to two rotten spoiled and useless dogs, Marley and Dylan. She believes that there would be world peace if everyone had a puppy or kitty belly to rub every day!
