About Granny Priest

The Rev. Stephanie Chase Bradbury

I am an Episcopal Priest, wife, mother, grandmother, and joyful child of God. While I have been ordained for over twenty-three years in the church, my passion for knowing God, and sharing my love of God with others, goes beyond traditional church. As a progressive Christian, I seek an alternative Orthodoxy, within the Perennial Tradition. I invite you therefore to watch my humorous videos, listen to my sermons, and ponder my reflections for short, inviting, meaningful steps along life's spiritual journey.
