The Rev. Erik Walker Wikstrom is a husband, the father of two boys, and a Unitarian Universalist minister and author. In an earlier era of his life he was a magician, juggler, fire eater, and clown. The intersection, for him, of all of these roles is a deep appreciation of wonder and a desire to see other people rediscover and experience their capacity for awe and delight.
In addition to his work serving two parishes -- in Maine and Massachusetts -- for nearly fifteen years, and his current service to Unitarian Universalism as part of the Association's national staff, Erik has also been proud to have had some success as an author. His first book was published in 2003. His latest, his third, in May 2010. (Many thanks to Skinner House Books for their continued support and faith in me!)
"Simply Pray is an excellent and much needed bridge for people who struggle with a way to pray that is authentic to them and their sense of the Holy . . . This book goes a long way toward feeding the hunger of such people with a nourishing spiritual feast. You will not be disappointed . . ."
~ Rev. Dr. Tilden Edwards, Founder of the Shalem Institute for Spiritual Formation
