The Rev. Dr. Harry Coverston
I am a fifth generation Floridian, a fourth generation educator, third generation college educator. My great grandparents were named Reed and Wright so I guess it was fate that I would end up a teacher. I am a recovering lawyer who still holds an inactive license with the Florida Bar (I stopped practice in 1990) and an ordained Episcopal priest. My spirituality is that of an inner world (nature) mystic. I am Franciscan to my very core, a professed member of 26 years in the Third Order Society of St. Francis (TSSF). Andy , my gentle souled, soft-spoken partner of 44 years became my legal husband in 2010 on the steps of the US Supreme Court. He is G-d's greatest gift to my life. I live within two hours of my nuclear family members. Historically I have been a yellow dawg Democrat though my politics are decidedly Green. I hold a Ph.D. in Religion, Law and Society from FSU, an M.Div. from Church Divinity School of the Pacific, member seminary of the GTU in Berkeley, CA, and a J.D. and a B.A. in History and Secondary Ed from the University of Florida. I complete a two year program at Richard Rohr’s Living School for Contemplation and Action in Albuquerque, NM August 2017.Interests: I am owned by three cats and two dogs, a dachshund and an energetic beagle pup. I live in the heart of Orlando behind a green wall of trees and tropical vegetation which provides enough tranquility that I can pray, meditate and write. I care about religion and politics probably more than I should. I retired from 13 years as lecturer at the University of Central Florida in 2014 but I continue to teach ethics and humanities as an adjunct at Osceola Campus of Valencia College in Kissimmee. I love my students and consider it an honor to work with my colleagues.
