Welcome Vicar Brady Fox

As we look to the beginning of the new program year, we are excited to welcome a new seminary intern to the Peace staff this September. Vicar Brady Fox is a student at Wartburg Seminary and will be with us for about 20 hours a week for 2 years. Here is a bit of an introduction:

Brady Wayne Fox (he/him/his) is a born and raised Okie actively coming to terms with his move to Texas. A second generation Lutheran, Brady is proud of the commitment to an actively reforming church that his mother made when she converted to Lutheranism as a teenager. Having grown up on beautiful Lake Texoma, Brady Wayne loves swimming, the smell of fire, and walks, with a side of existentialist ramblings. Brady first felt the call to be a minister in Christ’s church at 12, and has been seeking to be in closer communion with God’s people ever since. In his commitment to get a good Lutheran education he braved the frozen wastes of the far north to get his bachelors of religion from Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa. He is a full time student at Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa, where he spent the last school year living in intentional community.

Brady is a recovering snob of many kinds, particularly enjoying films, absurdist philosophy, and collecting records. Brady Wayne loves most things, but of note are pearl snaps, that old timey country music, and passionate diatribes about obscure periods of history and how they led to the world we inhabit today. Get him talking about any of his passions and listen for his Southern Oklahoma accent peeking out. A proud father, uncle, son, and brother, family means a lot to Brady. Brady Wayne is excited for the pastoral formation that this internship will offer him, and for the work to be done in the church community that is Peace Lutheran and the wider Austin community.
