Minister Bio

Saraswati Bharadwaja (nee Antoinette Botsford) lives with husband Vance and dog Friday in the San Juan islands, off the northern coast of Washington State. Her ministerial orientation has broadened to include an emphasis on Mystical Christianity and the services she offers (weddings, baby blessings, memorials, etc.), often reflect this. She is a Worship Leader at Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Eastsound, Washington and performs interfaith and alternative weddings and other rites of passage, often with a bit of storytelling thrown in, throughout Washington’s San Juan islands. Her dog Friday has been known to assist.
