Rev. Katie Jo Suddaby is an ordained American Baptist pastor, and internationally known sand-mandala artist. She gained her theological training from Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School, and her artistic training under the generous tutelage of Tibetan Buddhist monks in both America and Nepal. Her art is known for bold political imagery, and uncompromising critique of America’s immigration policy, police brutality, and obsession with guns. Her live sand-painting performances are also healing experiences for those of many faith traditions. The 2022 Festival of Homiletics is part of Pastor Suddaby’s 2022 world tour; making “Mandalas for Mourning” for those who have lost loved ones during the pandemic.
