Emily Farthing

Emily is pursuing her Master of Divinity at Union Theological Seminary (beginning Fall 2021)  and graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in Religious Studies and Non-Profit Management. 

She is inspired by working with others connecting secular and faith-based responses to housing justice issues, locally in Eugene, and internationally in Rio de Janeiro.

She believes her own faith life can be deeply enriched by learning from the faith traditions of others, and our world can address human rights issues with more humanness and immediacy when different faiths come together.

Emily is an activist, photographer, and cat mom. She is a member of the First Congregational Church of Eugene and hopes to pursue ordination in the United Church of Christ following graduation.
