Noblesville First Friends church has a new pastor. Katherine Murray gave her first sermon Feb. 5.

Since the summer of 2013, Murray has served as Hospice Chaplain/Bereavement Coordinator at Hancock Regional Hospital, and she will also continue to work there.

She studied Theology as an undergraduate and then earned a Master of Divinity degree in Pastoral Care and Counseling from Earlham School of Religion, Richmond, in 2008.

She is a recorded pastor with the Religious Society of Friends in Western Yearly Meeting. Murray also holds certifications in Clinical Health Coaching, Thanatology, Clinical Pastoral Education, Gestalt Practice, and Fundraising Management.

She has served in Meeting (church) leadership at West Newton Friends Meeting and congregational pastoral care at First Friends Meeting in Indianapolis. She holds memberships in several professional organizations and has written for many professional publications.

She has served as adjunct faculty member at Earlham School of Religion since 2010, has worked in private practice as a spiritual director and counselor and as chaplain at St. Vincent's Hospitals.

From 1988 through 2013, she has provided publishing services, from writing and editing to layout and indexing to publishers large and small, including Macmillan and Wiley & Sons, to non-profit organizations and professional journals. She has been involved in the writing or publishing of 50 books.

She has three adult children, two grandchildren, two dogs, one cat and logs of gardens. She said her personal interests include spiritual care and wellness, health, education, writing, nature, reading, cooking and gardening.

Murray replaces Pastor David Adams, who retired Feb. 1, after six years at the church.

On his last Sunday as pastor Jan. 29, the congregation gave him a bouquet of flowers. They were not of the live variety, but each member or attendee had a piece of paper with a picture of a flower and an area on which each wrote a message to Adams.
