After 29 years as rector of Memorial Episcopal Church in Bolton Hill, the retired Rev. F. Lyman Farnham is finding that life isn't any slower on the other side of the altar rail.Farnham, known to just about everyone as "Barney," had become synonymous with urban ministry in the Episcopal Church. He left the pulpit earlier this year, but he is not leaving Baltimore."My heart is in the city," he said.And he is not sitting still. "I have to continue to do ministry in some way, whatever that might be. God never stops calling," said Farnham, 65.So, instead of moving to the suburbs, he and his wife, Suzanne, restored a dilapidated rowhouse in Ridgely's Delight in the shadow of Camden Yards.
