The Rev. Dr. Mark Doty, who served three congregations in the Rio Texas Conference before his retirement, will lead the study of Gilead, the Pulitzer Prize winning novel written by Marilynne Robinson and published in 2004.
Mark moved back to San Antonio last summer and united with LHUMC, having served Jefferson UMC in the late 80’s. His Ph.D. in English from Indiana University specialized in 20thcentury American literature. Mark had the pleasure of hosting Ms. Robinson at his church in Maine in 2005 and regards her as one of our finest writers. She has become a good friend of President Barack Obama and was awarded the National Humanities Medal by him in 2012 for “her grace and intelligence in writing.”
