“Interfaith the Passion In Connection” with Dr. Harry’s guest Dr. Peggy Price
Rev. Dr. Peggy Price joined with the Seal Beach Church in May of 2006 as an interim minister. www.sbcsl.org It was clear from the beginning that there was a rapport between her and the congregation and in November it was decided by a vote of the membership to retain her as Senior Minister. Dr. Peggy graduated from Ernest Holmes College as a licentiate minister in 1996. She joined the Huntington Beach Church of Religious Science as Assistant Minister and within a year was assigned the role of acting Senior Minister, then installed as Senior Minister in spring of 1998. During her tenure, the church moved from its former location at Seacliff Village to a building which they purchased on Talbert Avenue in Huntington Beach. The church stabilized during those years and built a strong core. Dr. Peggy “retired” after seven years, only to discover she had more to accomplish in her ministry.
While in service at Huntington Beach she was one of the founding members of the Greater Huntington Beach Interfaith Council, serving three separate terms as President. She was a member of the United Clergy of RS Cabinet for three years, serving as President in 2002. She was co-Chair of Asilomar Summer Conference for both the 2001 and 2002 conferences.
Many people remember seeing Dr. Peggy on CNN and FOX television when she delivered the eulogy at the funeral service for Samantha Runnion which was held at the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove in July of 1992. Dr. Peggy represented Religious Science to the world as she spoke of the magic of this child’s life which had ended so tragically. Dr. Price has continued her friendship with Samantha‘s mother, Erin Runnion and serves as an advisor to the Board of The Joyful Child Foundation.
Dr. Peggy has been given numerous awards for her work in service to women and interfaith causes. Among them are the Huntington Beach Soroptimist Women Helping Women Award; the Ambassador for Peace and Crown of Peace Award from the Interreligious and International Federation for World Peace; and the Peacemaker Award from Greater Huntington Beach Interfaith Council.
In 2005 she was the invited guest of Global Cultural Connections, a Sufi peace organization on a trip to Turkey with other members of the clergy for the purpose of interfaith dialogue and peacemaking. Dr. Price has also addressed this organization several times here in the US, as well as being featured on Turkish television.
On an international level, Dr. Price has also served as a member of the Vision Core for United Centers for Spiritual Living, and currently serves as a member of the Social Issues Committee for United. In June of 2007 she was appointed Chair of the Professional and Ethical Standards Support Committee for United Centers for Spiritual Living.
She is published in the book Wake Up! Live the Life You Love, has written for Science of Mind Magazine, and writes the Lifestyles Page for HB Magazine. She has been featured on the TV show Miracles, as well as other local and national television programs.
