Students, faculty, and staff members enjoyed the second installment of Deep Dive and Dessert with Middle School English Instructor Edward McKinely on Wednesday, October 26 in the weCreate Studio.
During the Deep Dive session, McKinely discussed his creative work, his healing journey, and shared his favorite dessert with the audience. In addition to being a SSM teacher, McKinely is also a writer and ordained interspiritual minister. His first book, “Boy in the Ivy: The Inner Child of a Buried Man,” is a memoir of depression, suicide loss, and the renewal of hope. Later this year, he will release “Reclaiming My Spirit: Beyond the God of Shame,” the next installment in his ongoing journey toward healing.
McKinely’s presentation is the second in a planned series of weCreate events that showcase the interests, skills, and hobbies of SSM faculty and staff members.
