The Rev’d Dr. R. Stan Runnels is an Episcopal priest in the USA. He serves as rector of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church and Day School in Kansas City, Missouri. Stan is an Army BRAT and spent his formative years following his father around Western Europe, especially France and Germany from 1959-1969, with short stays in Texas and Mississippi (during a Vietnam deployment).
Stan is guided by a Sacramental and Incarnational understanding of faith and is strongly committed to a lived and vigorously exercised faith. Consequently, he is concerned about matters of justice and moral theology in society. Dietrich Bonhoeffer is a favorite theologian. Stan finds history a great source of insight and understanding for the present and the future.
